Panel urges sharp change for hospitals in Brooklyn

The New York Times, November 30, 2011
The New York State health commissioner should be given sweeping new powers to replace the executives and board members of private hospitals, a group appointed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo recommended Monday in a report on how to restructure Brooklyn's failing hospitals and health system. The report calls for legislation to provide such authority "not just in Brooklyn and not just for troubled hospitals, but across the state and along the continuum of care." At the same time, it called for changes in the law that could open hospitals and physicians' practices to investment by large private companies.
