Paul Taylor is CEO of Ozarks Community Hospital, a teeny 2 hospital system catering to the poor and senior populations in rural Missouri and Arkansas. He thinks that he’s figured out a way to deliver health care at government rates and is incensed that every other hospital claims it can’t make it on what Medicare pays. (That’s they I call him a renegade–I don’t mean that his hospital is called “Renegade”!) He also gets much less from the local Blues than he does from Medicare for the same services.
I wrote about Paul a while back and he sounded like a guy with interesting ideas on how to fix health care. So I called him up to see if he would be a good interview–and he didn’t disappoint!
