HCA doctors complain about firing
Three Aventura doctors who say they were recently fired or forced to leave HCA blasted the national healthcare chain Tuesday for what they characterized as inept handling of physician services. "It was a nightmare," interventional cardiologist Paul Vignola said of his 31/2 years with HCA, which owns Aventura Hospital. All three doctors said they signed up with HCA as part of a huge hiring wave in the past several years as the hospital chain, like many others around the country, decided that the best way to prepare for the new emphasis on accountable care organizations was to hire doctors and integrate them into a seamless system of care.
