Is the end of physician owned hospital near?

I am here is Las Vegas speaking at the AICPA National Healthcare Conference (tough job but someone has to do it!) The keynote speaker, a prominent attorney in Washington DC, said he would "bet the ranch" that a bill will be presented to President Bush in December which will include a total ban on new physician owned hospitals. He thinks a "deal" has already been struck between Congress and the American Hospital Association. How currently physician owned hospitals would be grandfathered in is unclear at this point.

Have questions? I’m here to help.
