More Bad Press for UChicago

From page 3 of this morning's Wall Street Journal, an article about a plan by UCMC to reduce their number of ER beds that has led two physicians to resign in protest.  

"The current plans to cut our bed number further will make it more likely that only the poorest of the poor will be waiting prolonged hours for care, longer than will be safe," wrote one of the physicians.

The hospital also plans to close a general medicine unit and an ICU, placing further strain on the remaining ER beds and increasing patient boarding.

Yet another sign of the times.
