Recent Study Disproves General Hospitals' Ongoing Criticism of Physician Owned Hospitals, Shows Little to No Effect on General Hospitals' Business, Reports Physician Hospitals of America
Date:4/24/2009

WASHINGTON, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- According to an April 22 study by the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), general hospitals are usually able to respond to the presence of physician owned hospitals with few, if any, changes to the terms of care for financially vulnerable patients.

The combined impact across nine states (Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio,
