Abstract: Recent developments in Indian healthcare service delivery, healthcare costs and its quality have
become significant areas of concern. The need for appropriate healthcare service is rapidly
growing with rising population and varying levels of affordability for such services, same is the
demand for quality healthcare services. Better quality of medical care is expected by anybody
seeking the services but also tagged with higher costs of hospitalization. This research paper
attempts to investigate the relationship between the cost of hospitalization and quality of
healthcare services in India. The findings have indicated an optimistic association between the
cost of hospitalization and physical infrastructure, while a pessimistic association between staff
to patient ratios was observed. Both of these relationships affect and contribute to the better
quality of healthcare, their impact of cost of hospitalization varies considerably.
