Why Choose Physician Owned Hospitals

Physician Owned Hospitals

Physician-owned hospitals came into being to provide doctors and patients with better facilities than they would otherwise have access to. As three Texas Congressmen (Pete Sessions, Sam Johnson, and Michael Burgess) stated in a 2008 letter to their colleagues, "Physician-owned facilities have often been shown to run more efficiently and have higher-quality outcomes than their community hospital counterparts. They have higher rates of patient satisfaction and lower mortality rates." The three also note, "America's health care system has continually led the world in innovation. This innovation has given patients unprecedented access to specialized care in all different fields of medicine. Both physician-owned facilities and specialty hospitals provide many choices beyond just the large community hospitals. This increase in choice allows competition and free market principles to enter into our health care delivery system, giving patients more participation in their health care decision."

Quoting Dr. John Gill, and orthopedic surgeon from Dallas and an investor in the Texas Institute for Surgery in a Modern Healthcare editorial (March 31, 2008), "Physicians have driven innovation in America's health care system starting with the very first hospitals built and funded by physicians such as the Mayo brothers." He goes on to point out that, "nearly every industry has recognized the benefits of specialization, and medicine is no different."

Most Americans would agree - specialization in health care is a good thing. If you have heart trouble, you see a cardiologist, if you have joint problems, an orthopedist, and if you have cancer, you see an oncologist. Thankfully we currently have those choices - and safeguarding them becomes all the more important as we age.
