Hospital savings: Salaries for doctors, not fees

The New York Times, July 27, 2010

Visiting the Cleveland Clinic last week, President Obama held up that well-known hospital as a model for the rest of the country. But for most of the nation’s nearly 6,000 hospitals, copying the Cleveland Clinic would be like asking the Durham Bulls, a minor league team, to copy the New York Yankees. A more accessible example is a Cooperstown, NY, hospital that sits a bit more than a home-run blast from the Baseball Hall of Fame here. Called Bassett Healthcare, this modest hospital of 180 beds delivers high-quality care at low costs in the face of federal reimbursement policies that discourage many of its best practices.
