The Feb, 1884 subscription was $1 annual paid in advance.  It was raised to $2 (paid in advance) a year later, but by 1901, the renamed "The Peoria Medical Journal", edited by O. B. Will, M.D. with T. M. McIlvaine on the consulting staff, had reduced the price back to $1.

In the Feb, 1884 edition there is an ad for "Cottage Hospital" (Incorporated 1883) (Cor Second and Fisher Sts.)
"An unendowed benevolent institution, is very centrally located, has handsome grounds, and elegant rooms,
good nursing, and is under the control of a Board of Directors composed of representatives from the various religious denominations.
No insane patients or persons suffering with any contagious disease, admitted.
A lying-in department affords benefits to a special class of cases.
The terms, invariably in advance, will vary according to rooms, but will be made as reasonable as possible.
Private rooms, $7.00 to $10.00 per week, double rooms, $5.00 to $7.00 per week. 
Treatment extra, except by special arrangement.
Any reputable physician can send in and attend his patients, retaining his own practice."
