SC hospitals, consumers caught in Obamacare tug-of-war

The State, August 4, 2014

South Carolina hospital executives these days are like football coaches at halftime, making changes based on what the opposition threw at them in the first half while trying to anticipate the different tactics they might face in the second half. They aren't the only ones.
