Letters. Boy, do we get letters. Each week MODERN HEALTHCARE attempts to publish as many pithy, poignant and perceptive letters as possible. But we simply don't have enough space.
In response, the magazine has decided to replace its one-page Commentary with an expanded letters department. This gives you a greater opportunity to criticize or compliment a story. The extra space also will let us print more letters that reflect your thoughts and ideas on subjects that affect healthcare providers.
The letters should be no longer than 300 words, and we reserve the right to edit them. And be sure to include your name, title, organization and telephone number. Unsigned letters or letters that don't allow us to contact the writer will not be considered.
Send your letters to: Editor Clark Bell at MODERN HEALTHCARE, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill. 60611.
