Who Wants to Be a Hospital CEO?

Philip Betbeze, for HealthLeaders Media , April 20, 2012

CEOs don't have a clear path to emerge from healthcare reform because of its continually shifting sands, and I'm not just talking about the impending decision on the constitutionality of the healthcare law due in June.

Speaking of which, "if all of this uncertainty results in accelerated bundled payments," says Keckley, as an example, "then you have docs and hospitals fighting over standards of care, how you cut the money, and who's responsible for various outcomes…It puts more pressure on hospital CEOs than I've seen in my career."

Almost makes you long for a profession where your job security rests on the shoulders of 18–22-year-old kids, doesn't it?
