I had exactly the same reaction to the makeup of the new Legacy Hospital Partners as did David Burda (Is this really their Legacy? Feb. 4, p. 23). We dont need some of these so-called leaders of not-for-profit hospitals making a bad name for everyone. Shame on them and their boards for seeing no conflicts of interest in this and for not valuing not-for-profit over for-profit healthcare.
