Has been

 He has ( been to - gone to - been in)  hospital since Monday.

Hello, Menem,

None of the options is incorrect. With "has been to" and "has gone to," the meaning is the same: he has made a trip there between Monday and now.

With "has been in," the meaning is different. Two interpretations are possible with "has been in." The likely one is that he has been there from Monday till now.

I'd like to note that no speaker of American English, including me, would use the sentence with any of the choices. We require an article before "hospital."
