Russian hospital finds push for progress blocked
Washington Post, March 21, 2008
Three days after a cardiac unit opened at the municipal hospital in Tarusa, Russia, Tarusa's mayor fired the hospital's head doctor and sent in the police to check for possible fraud in the refurbishing of the hospital, all of which had been financed privately. Doctors at the hospital said the crackdown was the result of a campaign by local officials to gain control of tens of thousands of dollars that were to be used for refurbishing the once-crumbling hospital.
