CHUM: $289 for a TV for a month

At the new CHUM it costs long-term patients $289 per month to have a TV, and in theory they would pay almost $400 to have internet service as well, but that’s not available yet. Charges at other hospitals are listed (much lower) but the MUHC rate is not mentioned.

At the same time, in the Journal, QMI also notes that TV is supposed to be free for palliative care patients – but it’s not available yet either.
