Regarding the article “U.S. hospitals see profits dive, AHA reports”:
While I do not relish hospital staff losing their jobs due to lost revenue, I do not care for the fact that hospitals make a profit off of sickness. My feeling is that medical care is a right and not a privilege. Therefore, if I come to the hospital sick and in need of help, neither I, nor my insurance plan, if I have one, should be gouged with overpriced services and supplies. From the executives on down, we need hospitals with a heart to truly help the sick not providers who are stuck on the numbers.
