Consumer, labor groups slam NJ Health Department for lax hospital oversight

The report by Health Professionals and Allied Employees, a critic of for-profit hospital ownership, said New Jersey had become an attractive state to buy struggling community hospitals because it conducted "superficial" reviews of company track records and how money would be spent.
