Top-Ranked Hospital Cuts Budget $165 Million Due to 'ObamaCare;' Others May Follow Suit

Possibly signaling a national trend, The Cleveland Clinic, ranked the fourth-best American hospital by U.S. News & World Report, announced that it plans to cut $330 million from its 2014 budget, and attributed about half of those cuts – roughly $165 million –directly to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as "ObamaCare."

Massachusetts General Hospital, ranked number two by U.S. News & World Report, also reported increased budget cuts but did not have a specific number.

"We had to take about $330 million out of next year's budget," Eileen Sheil, executive director of corporate communications at the Cleveland Clinic, said in an interview on Monday. Sheil told The Christian Post that "half of the 330" is directly attributable to ObamaCare. ...

Cleveland Clinic has stated that this story is another lie put out there by those against Obama Care. This is untrue.

Without excusing government-mandated costs already imposed upon hospitals, if you want to see how much they waste, just ask for an itemized bill the next time you or a family member is hospitalized. We did, & discovered they were (probably due to staff carelessness) overcharging our insurer. It took considerable effort to get the insurance company to recognize that *they* were getting ripped off; but they finally woke up & corrected the bill from the hospital in their favor. So don't always assume insurance companies are predatory; in this case, they were the victim.

This suggests to me that patients themselves have little awareness of or interest in containing costs, so the institutions run open-loop & waste everyone's money. Remember: every little thing the hospital provides, right down to Tylenolâ„¢, gets added to your bill, just as in a hotel.

I go to Cleveland Clinic monthly for care. All a per as on has to do is walk around and spot all the waste that is going on. Marble tiles, water fountains inside and out, large art work, the list goes on and on. If the business men running t h e hospital were worried about costs these wastes wouldn't be happening. Don't let them fool anyone of you that they are going broke. Time to STOP hospitals from worrying more about what's good for business and start running a hospital like it should be run. Christians gave up running hospitals and handed them over to business men. We have no right to complain now.
