If you are over 50 you probably remember all the hospitals operated by churches, and the staffing of Nuns, and other caring , but low-paid individuals.
They are mostly gone now, and larger, more expensive ones are in their place. But, there is a growing trend among hospitals today that should have all of us concerned. They are merging into larger conglomerates with more power, But, will they offer good care for all?
The original article is from the NYTimes, and . Trudy Lieberman gives a shout-out regarding the mergers and their impact.
Has your neighborhood hospital merged lately? Are you concerned ?
