No other individual in the healthcare delivery system possesses as much education and training as a physician, and patients rely on the physicians’ high-level of expertise to help make informed decisions about the best treatment options possible. Despite being recognized as the most essential aspect of the healthcare system, physicians have been banned from owning and operating hospitals due to the efforts of special interest lobbyists to halt competition.
Every day, headlines point to rising healthcare costs and decreasing choices for Americans due to closures and acquisitions. It’s time to end the special interest ban on physician-led hospitals and allow physicians to operate hospitals in America’s communities to unleash competition to offer lower costs, increased access and higher quality healthcare options for Americans.
