"Some U.S. senators and state lawmakers are worried that the growth in specialty hospitals-which is taking off like a bullet-will strip full-service hospitals of money they depend on. These lawmakers argue that there's a limit to how many hospitals a community can afford. They rightly insist that if a region has a terrific boutique hospital for heart patients, but a third-rate emergency room, that's dire. ... Slowing things down is a good idea, although maybe an ineffective one; while lawmakers are thinking about the moratorium, dozens of investors are lining up to get in under any deadline."
