Akron (OH) General Medical Center cries foul on rival hospital

Akron Beacon Journal, August 28, 2008

Leaders of Akron General Medical Center are coming out publicly against plans for a for-profit, physician-owned hospital in northern Summit County, OH. A group of Akron General department chairs recently launched a campaign against a 100-bed, for-profit hospital that physician investors want to build in partnership with General's cross-town rival, Summa Health System. The Akron General doctors argue that the physician-owned hospital will attract affluent, well-insured patients with less-complicated cases, leaving Akron's nonprofit hospitals stuck caring for uninsured patients and those with costly, complex problems.
