"Before dinner, MIACC Executive Director Sanbdi Riedemann brought up sponsor Scott Campbell, CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System, who took the opportunity to announce his organization has leased over 8,000 square feet of space in the Shops of Marco for a new island health clinic."
From the NDN story:
"A Naples-based hospital operator landed on "60 Minutes" on Sunday, with the lead segment focused on accusations by more than 100 of its current and former employees that it has pressured its doctors to admit patients "regardless of medical need" to boost company profits.
The CBS investigation for the report on Health Management Associates Inc...In Collier County, HMA's hospitals include Physicians Regional — Pine Ridge and Physicians Regional — Collier."
On camera, several of the company's former employees shared the same story, saying there were admission targets and software that coerced HMA doctors into admitting more patients. They accused the company of fraud and said doctors who didn't meet quotas faced threats they would be fired."
>>> Does our esteemed MIACC then anticipate getting a cut for every unlucky island resident visiting this new clinic and getting sucked up into the HMA hospitalization quota machine?
