Can HMA make good on promises to Bayfront and St. Pete?

Tampa Bay Times, December 18, 2012
Since moving into Hernando County nearly 15 years ago, Health Management Associates has transformed two bankrupt hospitals into modern facilities with whopping profit margins. Brooksville and Spring Hill Regional Hospitals are a success story for the for-profit chain, which cites them as an example of how it turns around troubled institutions while providing high quality care and serving the poor. It's a track record the Naples-based company has urged St. Petersburg officials to examine as HMA seeks an 80 percent ownership stake in Bayfront Medical Center.
