"Twelve New York hospitals have closed in the last 27 months.."
And hundreds more across the country will continue to close down as hordes upon hordes of 3rd world aliens continues the invasion of our country. Today is hospitals, tomorrow will be which institutions?
It's the LAWSUITS!!!
I have a solution, or at least a partial one:
Why not "private, membership-only" hospitals?
Unlike "public" hospitals, which must admit anyone regardless of ability to pay, a "membership" hospital would be something of a "closed operation", open _only_ to those who had some kind of pre-arranged "membership plan" with the institution. And a pre-arranged PAYMENT plan, as well.
Membership could be had through health insurance plans, either company-provided or "end user purchased", possibly directly from the hosptial itself.
Thus, every patient would represent guaranteed income for the institution. No illegals need seek admission, unless, of course, they were willing to purchase a membership plan for themselves or their families "up front".
I realize that there are laws which prohibit any hospital from operating an emergency room unless they are willing to admit _every_ comer. For this reason, the private hospitals would of necessity have to decline all emergency treatment. But for long- or short-term pre-arranged care, I doubt that any laws could be passed that would prevent a private members-only hospital from operating as such.
And - with every patient a PAYING patient - perhaps the private hospitals could also offer care at a more reasonable cost, since paying patients would not have to be charged extra to cover the hospital's losses on non-payers.
Do such private hospitals already exist? If not, could they not offer a solution in some instances?
