This is long but well worth a read. Modern Healthcare ran a roundtable on health care in New Orleans post Katrina with 2 health care execs and 2 consultants who did a study on the state of play. Essentially because the Oschner clinic was on slightly higher ground than the rest of the city, and stayed open, it’s had its financial ass handed to it on a plate. And despite the $90 billion rescue package (or whatever it was) no one is helping. It’s basically having to suck up the loss. And is the city ready for another hurricane? No prizes for guessing the answer.
