We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
When a medical staff at Eisenhower Medical Center on Palm Springs elected a Chief of Staff other than the one selected by the Board, Dolores Hope widow of the big benefactor Bob Hope, talked about the "peasants" trying to tell the master how to run the estate. That was 20 years ago.
For decades there have been many small hospitals owned and run by doctors and professional associations. If "Big Hospital" wants more of the cash flow, in the future I suppose that medical professionals who truly want to be independent and profit from that independence will find a way to compete with them, something along the lines of the doctor-owned enterprises already with us.
In ages past, the hospital was an essential resource for the individual physicians and surgeons to provide medical care. Now, health care is provided by institutional hospitals, insurance or government payors - with doctors considered expensive parts of the greater organization. The enterprise is directed by administrators - management, and the physician "input" often minimized by design. Too bad the 'Dilbert' view of managers holds true in health care as well as other business organizations.
When doctors and nurses stop acting like entitled babies, I will maybe care. Nobody but the 'businessmen' seem to care about a hospital actually staying in business. Doctors get paid exorbitant salaries or have their failing clinics 'bought out' by hospitals trying to be competitive and dump a mess on the hospital to straighten out. Nurses want hospitals to hire more and more nurses, so their jobs are easier, but still want paid a higher and higher wage.
Meanwhile, hospitals are barely staying alive in many regions of the country b/c they think more about 'providing services to the people' rather than actually staying afloat.
Hospitals probably are always going to be run by whoever puts up the money for them. If that's not doctors, doctors can expect not to be in charge. They'll always have a lot of influence, as long as they have a special expertise they can threaten to withdraw, but it's not the role of capital to cater to their egos.
