All NJ hospitals will have to disclose more financial information, health commissioner says / Star Ledger, July 21, 2014

All hospitals in New Jersey — including the growing number of private, for-profit hospitals — would have to publicly disclose financial audits and internal business dealings, under a proposal made public Friday night by State Health Commissioner Mary O’Dowd. Gov. Chris Christie directed O’Dowd to study the issue of hospital transparency and accountability after he vetoed a bill in 2012 that would have placed broad disclosure requirements on for-profit, investor-run hospitals that are not legally required to publicly disclose this information.
