Senators Baucus and Grassley Statement Regarding Physician Hospitals 'Despicable'
Date:7/17/2009

WASHINGTON, July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Brett Gosney, President of the Board of Directors of Physician Hospitals of America in response to a news release issued today (July 17, 2009) by U.S. Senators Max Baucus and Chuck Grassley.

"It is despicable that Senators Max Baucus and Chuck Grassley would use the tragic death of one patient to help support the efforts of corporate hospitals and bureaucrats in their efforts to undermine hospitals owned and operated by physicians themselves. The fact of the matter is, every independent study, including those by the federal government, demonstrate physician-owned hospitals have lower mortality rates and lower morbidity rates by patient outcomes across the United States. There are over 100,000 preventable deaths in American hospitals every year.

As recently as last week, the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) released national data, which again shows significantly better outcomes for patients at hospitals owned and operated by physicians, rather than those under the control of bureaucrats and corporations. Unfortunately, Senators Baucus and Grassley appear to be getting their information exclusively from opponents of Physician Hospitals of America, such as the American Hospital Association.

They are cherry picking tragedies for political leverage and perpetuating a mythology which was created for no purpose other than to financially benefit the big box hospitals and those operated by bureaucrats and corporations, without regard to patient outcomes and overall quality."

Physician Hospitals of America (PHA) represents 220 American hospitals owned and operated by physicians themselves. PHA is on the web at: www.physicianhospitals.org
