Massachusetts hospital executive says network trying to become less pricey

Boston Globe, March 19, 2010

A top executive from Partners HealthCare, the large Massachusetts hospital and physician network that has been blamed by some for helping to push up healthcare costs, said the organization realizes it's too costly and is working to become less expensive. But Thomas Glynn, chief operating officer for Partners, testified under oath at a state hearing that while prices charged by better-paid hospitals and doctors have contributed to rising healthcare costs, they do not have as big of a role as state regulators have suggested, the Boston Globe reports.
