Kaiser runs hospital as a business
Kaiser is a business. Thus, they run the hospital like a business. Patients who are seen in the emergency room or admitted and discharged are all being approached to change from private insurance to Kaiser. Patients are being sent home from ER that should be admitted.
Thank you, Gov. Ige, for a mess at Maui Memorial Medical Center. The contract could have been awarded to a Hawaii hospital group with Straub/Kapiolani, etc. Now serious medical problems need to be sent to Honolulu or the Mainland.
