Massachusetts seeks federal money to aid hospitals

Boston Globe, March 2, 2010

Massachusetts has appealed to the federal government to help hospitals that care for disproportionately high numbers of lower-income patients who receive state-sponsored health insurance. Governor Deval Patrick is asking the Obama administration for $216 million for Cambridge Health Alliance, the state's only public acute-care hospital, and another $115 million for six private hospitals with high Medicaid patient populations, including Boston Medical Center and Caritas Carney in Boston.
