Boston's Beth Israel braces for $20 million loss this year

Boston Globe, March 6, 2009

Chief executive Paul F. Levy said the expense cuts are necessary because of state cutbacks on Medicaid payments, a disappointing contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, and an unexpected drop in patient volume.
