Hospitals lose sight of public mission

If you haven't read the revealing five part series on hospitals in North Carolina reported jointly by the Charlotte Observer and News & Observer, please do. This is the definition of good and important journalism. It is tragic that some nonprofit hospitals have lost their way, paying millions to executives while soaking patients. Carolinas HealthCare is busy suing Vietnam Veterans and attaching liens on the homes of people who struggle to get by while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer support.

Please watch the video we made with Joyce Jones, one of the people profiled in the series. And go to the Facebook page of Carolinas HealthCare and ask them to change their ways.
