The purpose was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of class rooms inpatients for reduction LOS. The research design was cost-effectiveness analysis by retrospective study in Private Hospital X in Sidoarjo, Indonesia, for DHF inpatients. The research was conducted at the Inpatient Installation of Private Hospital X, By Pass Krian, Sidoarjo in January-December 2020. The variables were LOS and cost of treatment in the hospital.

The highest cost was in class I (IDR 3,289,599) compared to class II (IDR 2,985,496) and III (2,985,496). And there was significant difference between the three classes. The lowest length of stay was in class I (4.58 days) compared to class II (4.76 days) and class III (4.8 days).
