Iowa-S. Dakota Physicians Appeal to Presidential Candidates: 'Help Defend America's Safest and Highest Quality Hospitals'
Date:12/6/2007

nt of your time during your busy campaign. As you know, many "crises" have been pointed out in healthcare, including the issues of the uninsured, Medicare program solvency, fraudulent billing practices and medical inflation, just to name a few. While we understand these issues must be addressed, we are writing to ask you to support a hospital ownership issue. We are asking that our well run physician-owned hospital not be legislated out of existence.

While each presidential candidate is addressing the major issue involved in the national healthcare management, the US Finance Committee is poised to wipe out nearly 200 of America's physician-run hospitals at the urgings of a few politicians and the huge hospital chains for whom they appear to work. Our cause is truly a "David versus Goliath" issue that a monopolistic Goliath American Hospital Association (AHA) may defeat.

Physician owned and run hospitals may have a long history in America (e.g. Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic), but recently have been vilified as a demonstration of physician avarice and patient abuse absent any legitimate evidence. The CMS has demonstrated our facilities are of good quality and are good for the hospital industry in two studies. We urge you to review the enclosed pamphlets that outline the fallacies of the AHA's complaints against us. In spite of this evidence, we feel our competitors will restrain us through legislative means not because any concern regarding self-referral, over-utilization or "cherry-picking" of patients, but only because this is an opportunity to eliminate a competitor.

Specific to our facility, I would like to share the following facts. Our patient satisfaction is high. Press Ganey, an independent company that tracks patient satisfaction recently surveyed 1460 hospitals nation wide. In 18 of 25 satisfaction categories we rank in the top 1%, and overall in the top 5%. Our quality is high. We are ranked in the top 5% in the nation for spinal surger
