New Poll From Lake Research Shows Americans Support Allowing Physicians to Own and Operate Hospitals
Date:3/14/2008

WASHINGTON, March 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American public believes doctors and physicians would do a good job running hospitals in their community and they want doctors to make decisions about patient care and how hospitals are run. They believe doctors should be allowed to own hospitals where they work and that Congress ought to vote to allow this practice to continue.

A recent Lake Research Partners' national survey(1) shows that doctors and physicians have a high level of credibility with the American public. Physicians and doctors are the top group Americans have confidence in when it comes to running hospitals in their community. Two-thirds (67%) of the American public believes doctors and physicians would do an excellent or good job (18% excellent) running a hospital in their community, while just one in four (23%) think they would do a just fair or poor job.(2) Comparatively, only 29% of the public think a health insurance company would do an excellent or good job, and only 34% think a tax-exempt corporation would do an excellent or good job.

Americans also believe that physicians and surgeons ought to be making decisions about how patients receive care in hospitals, and about how hospitals are being run.(3) Physicians and surgeons are the choice of 39%, followed by hospital administrators (28%), nurses (15%), and community health officials (10%).

In an engaged debate,(4) Americans support physician owned hospitals by a 12-point margin. 50% of adults think doctors should be allowed to own and operate the hospitals in which they work, while 38% feel they should be prevented from doing so. Support for physician owned hospitals extends across demographic groups including men (+20 net allow), women (+6), Republicans (+28), Democrats (+14), younger Americans (+15), and older (+13) Americans, as well as across all geographical regions.

Americans not only personally feel physicians should be allowed to own and operate hos
