Physician Hospitals of America Charges: Hospital Associations Bargain Away $155 Billion in Medicare Funding in Attempt to Destroy Physician Hospitals
Date:7/8/2009

WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the American Hospital Association, Federation of American Hospitals and Catholic Health Association announced an agreement with the White House and Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) to reduce Medicare hospital spending by $155 billion.

There are 18 general acute care facilities, 153 multispecialty facilities (children's, women's and
