Obamacare Ends Construction of 45 Doctor-Owned Hospitals

The Weekly Standard:  “Physician Hospitals of America says that construction had to stop at 45 hospitals nationwide or they would not be able to bill Medicare for treatments.” Stopping construction at doctor-owned hospitals might not seem like the best way to boost the economy or to promote greater access and choice in health care, but that exactly what Obamacare is doing. “

See “War on Doctors,” which states:

“The Democrats’ overhaul was supposed to increase access to health care. Yet construction on 45 hospitals has been shut down due to the legislation. This is a step back, not ahead.  As part of their effort to eventually end all private health care, the Democrats placed a provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that in essence shuts down construction of new physician-owned hospitals and blocks existing ones from expanding.”
