A not for profit agency has to treat every one in the community, weather they can pay or not. This agency will make money eventually, since they have to in order to keep afloat. The money will be less and slower coming. Therefor, this agency will develop
community based programs focused on preventitive medicine in order to keep the community healthier in theory. This is due in part because they can not afford to offer more extensive services that are more expensive. The staff for these agencies will be over worked and under paid
. The for profit on the other hand will be selective. The staff will be better paid
, equipment will be kept updated in order to offer more extensive services. The community will benefit in a different way with increased income coming into the community providing economic growth. If the citizen pays for health care in one way or another, ie. taxes, insurance premiums, then why should the state government be allowed to dictate if the state will have only not for profit hospitals or for profit hospitals? Why can there not be both types of services in a community so the people who pay for health care vcan actually choice where and what type of services they want. [continues]
