Background: Concern has been expressed that for-profit hospitals may have financial incentives to selectively treat younger, relatively healthier or insured patients, withhold expensive procedures or treatments, and encourage shorter inpatient length of stays (LOS).. Methods: Using data from the CRUSADE initiative, we investigated whether hospital type influenced patient casemix, care, and/or outcomes among 145,357 patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) treated between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2005, at 532 US hospitals. Impact of for-profit hospital status on care and outcomes was analyzed overall and after adjustment for clinical factors using regression modeling.. Results: CRUSADE included 58 for-profit (n=11,658 patients) and 474 non-profit (n=133,699 patients) centers based on American Hospital Association reporting. Compared with non-profit hospitals, patients treated at for-profit hospitals were of similar age (mean 67.6 vs 67.3 years), sex (38.9% vs ...

The U.S. Justice Department says a series of hospital contracts to provide translation services and a culturally accommodating environment for Hispanic maternity patients was actually part of a kickback conspiracy designed to steer Medicaid patients to Tenet Corp. and Health Management Associates facilities.. The Justice Department opted on Tuesday to join a whistle-blower lawsuit against five hospitals owned by the two for-profit hospital chains. Prosecutors say the services described by the hospitals as being for Hispanic clients in Georgia and South Carolina were actually illegal payments to a local clinic intended to induce the clinic to send its maternity patients to Tenet and HMA hospitals. Paying for or accepting money to arrange for medical treatment under federally funded programs is prohibited by the Medicare anti-kickback statute. "In a time when too many people were struggling to get health care for themselves and their children, Tenet and these hospitals plundered a system set up ...
A Texas lawyer who shared a business partner with George W. Bush, Scott started his health company, Columbia Hospital Corporation, in 1987. Its growth was meteoric, expanding from just a few hospitals to more than 1,000 facilities in thirty-eight states and three other countries in 1997. As his firm gobbled up chains, like the Frist familys Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), it became the largest for-profit hospital chain in the country. By 1994, Columbia/HCA was one of the forty largest corporations in America, and Scott had acquired a reputation as the Gordon Gecko of the healthcare world. "Whose patients are you stealing?" he would ask employees at his newly acquired hospitals ...

The corruption of the U.S. monetary system cries out for sweeping reforms. One way to restructure the system fundamentally would be to convert the banking industry into a public utility. The elected Congress should re-assert its Constitutional prerogative to determine monetary policy and issue real dollars, instead of Federal Reserve Notes (I.O.U.s owed to private for-profit banks), at fixed interest and use the interest collected to offset the tax burden that weighs on the public. "Capitalists" might complain that government should not get into the banking business. But more to the point would be the corresponding "Socialist" complaint that banks need to get out of the governing business. ...

Community Health Systems Inc. plans to spend $3.9 billion to acquire Health Management Associates Inc. in a deal that would create a giant U.S. hospital chain just as the health care overhaul starts funneling millions of newly insured people into the health care system.. But Community Health wants to buy its fellow hospital operator at a discount, with shareholders assuming some of the risk that the company faces from federal investigations. Investors panned that idea, at least initially, by sending shares of Health Management plunging Tuesday after the deal was announced.. Community Health, based in Franklin, Tenn., plans to pay a combination of cash and stock valued at $13.78 for each HMA share. It also will make an additional contingent value right payment of up to $1 per share depending on how the investigations play out.. Naples, Fla.-based Health Management, also known as HMA, said Tuesday it has received a fresh round of subpoenas from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, ...

Trumps America will be a great place for banks and for-profit colleges - but not for hospitals - according to the Wall Street hive mind.

National Bureau of Economic Research, June 2017. Abstract. Little is known about how the adoption and diffusion of medical innovation is related to and influenced by market characteristics such as competition. The particular complications involved in investigating these relationships in the health care sector may explain the dearth of research. We examine diagnostic angiography, percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), three invasive cardiac services. We document the relationship between the adoption by hospitals of these three invasive cardiac services and the characteristics of hospitals, their markets, and the interactions among them, from 1996-2014. The results show that the probability of hospitals adopting a new cardiac service depends on competition in two distinct ways: 1) hospitals are substantially more likely to adopt an invasive cardiac service if competitor hospitals also adopt new services; 2) hospitals are less likely to adopt a new ...

The difference is very significant," said Yi Zhang, who led the study conducted by the Medical Technology & Practice Patterns Institute, a Bethesda nonprofit. "Its not five or seven percent. Its pretty dramatic.". The study also found that patients had a 13 percent lower mortality risk if they were treated at nonprofit clinics, regardless of chain ownership, than if they received care at for-profit clinics.. The studys findings are likely to stir debate because U.S. mortality rates for dialysis remain among the highest in the industrialized world - one in five patients dies each year - and because more patients than ever are getting their care from for-profit chains.. More than 80 percent of American dialysis clinics are run for profit. Chain ownership has increased more than 11-fold since the early 1990s. Two for-profit companies - Fresenius Medical Care North America [2] and DaVita Inc. [3] - now control about two-thirds of the market for dialysis care.. In a recent ProPublica investigation ...

Nonprofits are the Third Sector because they are neither private for-profit corporations nor public agencies. Instead, nonprofits occupy the nebulous space of a private agency often operating with a large share of public funding in government grants and contracts. Many governments have followed suit with their corporate counterparts in decreasing payrolls, partially because of shrinking revenues and partially because of an unshakable faith in free markets being more efficient in delivering services.. This faith in the free market has given rise to the Third Sector and to large nonprofits such as Larkin Street Youth Services (LSYS) among many others. Many of the jobs in the nonprofit service sector used to be occupied by public sector employees. However, following the trend of trade union workers in the private sector having their jobs moved overseas, governments have found it increasingly more cost-effective to outsource the work of unionized public workers to privatized nonprofits, in which ...

If not, what then?. Surely the end-game of the years-long efforts of Catholic Health Initiatives and KentuckyOne Health to sell some or all of their hospitals in Louisville must be coming to a climax. Transferring management of University of Louisville Hospital to KentuckyOne- a move that turned out badly for both institutions- was always as much or more about saving Jewish than ULH. Many outside entities came to kick the tires of what KentuckyOne wanted to sell but walked off the lot. The last acknowledged potential buyer whose keys KentuckyOne was holding was the tag-team of the private equity firm Blue Mountain and its spinoff for-profit hospital management company, Integrity Healthcare- now majority-owned by for-profit Nantworks Companies and Nantworks owner Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong. Sound complicated? It is! Casting a very dark curtain over this potential transaction in Louisville is last weeks announcement that Blue Mountain & Co.s first and only attempt to take over a failing non-profit ...
The problem with our healthcare system IS big money. From big pharma to big insurance to for-profit hospitals, its all about making record profits while denying care. Its big profits found in an industry that should not be based on profit at all. But, the fight is on. Because John Martin and his ilk arent going to easily give up the cash cow they have sustained by tapping into humanitys desperation to survive when staring into the eyes of a beast.. The human experience is peppered with pain and suffering. For some, that misery comes to them in the form of illness or disability. When humanity has progressed to the point that we are able to cure and comfort the sick with science, but the price tag is only fitting for the rich (so the rich stay rich), it is a symptom of a much larger abscess brought about through one very specific source of moral decay: greed.. Unfortunately, there isnt a pill for that. So, vote. Vote like your life depends on it.. Because it does. ...
