No better example than what’s in my neighborhood: Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
As a professional development field trip two weeks ago, some fellow colleagues and I had a guided tour of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, including a luncheon in a conference room. All I kept thinking was “No parent has to deny care for their kids here. It’s FREE… WOW.”
Non-profit, albeit privately run. Generous donations and in-house research and development to create patents are what fund this hospital.
Can I just say that for-profit healthcare (whether private or public), IMHO, sucks?
Okay — back to class for me.
