The most expensive hospital in America believe it or not is in New Jersey.

That’s the word from the folks at the New York Times.

They found Bayonne Medical Center charges Medicare the highest rates in America.

The hospital charged 17 times what Medicare pays for treating chronic lung disease.

But a state hospital quality report finds the treatment at Bayonne isn’t necessarily any better.

It was only ranked in the top 50% of hospitals in New Jersey.
