Hospital-employed physicians may be under pressure

December 13, 2012

The New York Times claims that today, about 39% of doctors nationwide are independent, down from 57% in 2000, citing estimates by the consulting firm Accenture. The article "A Hospital War Reflects a Bind for Doctors in the U.S.," which appeared on the New York Times web site on November 30, 2012, discusses the state of healthcare in Boise, Idaho, which the authors call "a medical battleground" and claim is representative of the healthcare situation in many cities around the United States.
