The News-Press (FL), June 27, 2008
Lee Memorial Health System President Jim Nathan is trying to reassure doctors he's not trying to buy them out. The remarks, made during a board of directors meeting, were in response to a Brett Hickman of PricewaterhouseCoopers suggesting Lee Memorial might want to consider employing community physicians as a means of streamlining care. Some doctors in the area worry it could mean doom for independent medical practices and patient choice.
