The authors present an analysis of direct departmental expenses in 72 community hospitals in Massachusetts for the years 1958–59 and 1962–63. Their purpose is to offer new insights into the fundamental relation between the costs of medical care and the administrative structure of hospitals. The conclusions of their study indicate that the hospital industry could find more efficient ways of providing medical care through organizational changes and thus offset or at least moderate the pressures to increase costs.
