RetireSafe Urges All Seniors to Call on Congress to Save Physician Hospitals' Quality Care for Medicare Patients
Date:3/10/2010

He continued, "Physician hospitals offer the best in patient care, and rate far higher than most of the big chain and so-called 'community' hospitals they compete against. Study after study proves that the smaller physician hospitals provide a higher nurse to patient ratio, more physician control of hospital operations, and minimal patient disruption during recovery.

"Now, thanks to a recent study, we know that physician hospital patients can also expect lower costs, According to Oxford Outcomes, a Medicare patient will pay (on average) $734 less at a physician-owned hospital than they would pay at a non-physician owned hospital. For cardiac and orthopedic patients the Medicare savings were even larger.

"Last year's Consumer Reports study, involving more than one million hospital patients nationwide, ranked physician hospitals as the number one hospital in 19 states, and near the top in the other states in which they operate. Every older American should tell their Member of Congress to stand up for better hospital care and lower hospital costs by opposing the rationing of Medicare hospital benefits at physician hospitals."
