Guest Column: Mission Health Joining HCA Is Not 'Great News'
Last updated 4/2/2018 at 2:05pm
The announcement that Mission Health is considering joining the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) as reported in your lead article and the Guest Column by Michele Pilon in the March 26 Transylvania Times has me greatly concerned.
Unlike the views expressed by the Mission Board members and hospital executive, I do not see such a move as “great news.” I believe that such an action might well be disadvantageous for our community and should be viewed soberly. And, my concern is heightened by our learning of this proposal only after a letter of agreement has already been signed.
