Survival Strategies for Major Public Hospitals

Continued cuts from the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, "managed care", and other forces will pressure major public hospitals for a number of years. This session presents financial and other survival strategies from the executives of major public hospitals and others in the field, in order to assure capacity of these hospitals to continue to provide health care in underserved communities. Panel members will also assess those factors that may hinder the succesful survival of public hospitals in the current health care and economic climate
