An undocumented immigrant’s 374-day stay at a Fresno hospital cost $1 million, a hospital tabulation of the costs shows. When Marco Antonio Fuentes left Community Regional Medical Center on Jan. 4, officials said they needed time to calculate the costs. Fuentes, 35, was admitted Dec. 26, 2010, with necrotizing pancreatitis. It took 12 operations to save him.
