Turnaround expert assessing a Massachusetts hospital's business
Boston Globe, December 28, 2007
Caritas Carney Hospital in Dorchester, MA, has hired a consulting team to analyze the institution's business and devise ways for it to improve its financial performance. In recent years, Carney Hospital has struggled financially, in part because so many of its patients rely on Medicare and Medicaid for their insurance. Those government programs typically pay less for hospital services than private insurance plans.
