St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 27, 2008

Hospital finance experts often question whether competition spurs expansion of unneeded medical services. Healthcare executives in St. Charles County, however, say the projects they're focusing on modernize necessary services and expand capacity at already busy hospitals.
