Finances were a continual concern for the sanatorium. The brochure stated, "we are obliged to charge the actual cost of maintenance." That was $10-$12 a week when the brochure was produced about 1909.

Patients had to supply their own thermometers, sputum cups, fur coats and heavy blankets and pay to have their laundry done.

Some patients were required to pay for extra nursing care.
