I agree as well. Keep the costs to surgeries and such.

Let treatment be done outside of the hospital.
And many of the newer hospitals show that.
You have the hospital and then surrounding the hospital are all these various treatment centers.

Surgery Center of Oklahoma | Free market-loving, price-displaying, state-of-the-art, AAAHC accredited, doctor owned, multispecialty surgical facility in central OK.

Please review the site and notice it has prices listed for all procedures completed. Should this be the model moving forward?
actually anything OTHER than hospitals is certainly part of the answer

the outpatient style ambulatory surgery centers are by far the better choice and more economical choice from the hospital model.....but then again the hospital model and the AHA/AMA have been the GOVERNMENT MANDATE choice for SCORES of years (since the 1940's))
