Retail Clinics and Ailing Hospitals: Take 3

Posted Aug 25 2008 2:52pm
Two articles tonight yield some reassurance. My first and second tirades state my position as clearly as a poor neophyte blogger can do.

Grady is mismanaged, even though the CEO is hardly the cause of a half-century's neglect of market realities. He has resigned .

Retail clinics are a diversion and a general drain on scarce medical resources, but some readers have reminded me they are not likely to last. "Right you are," I must say to the gadfly commenter. A Walmart partner shows that mismanagement is hardly the exclusive domain of large public hospitals. One chain has gone bankrupt .

There is a clear connection between the two; it is further evidence of a maldistribution of resources from where they can have impact (primary care of chronic disease indigent populations) to low-impact: retail.
