My professional training and most of my experience took place with
not-for-profit and small for-profit health care providers. During that

cash and then close them, leaving their employees without jobs and
communities without an acute care provider, and/or ran competing
hospitals out of business by under pricing them in managed care
contract negotiation. This quote was stated in April 2004.

from this company, although if they now are feeling the burden of
charity care write-offs, it makes good business sense. The quote is getting renewed attention due to a recent investigation
