Ex-HCA boss Rick Scott rankles critics in health fight
The Tennessean, June 23, 2009
Rick Scott was ousted as the chief executive of Nashville-based Columbia/HCA more than a decade ago, and he is getting a lot of buzz these days. Scott has emerged as a spokesman for a group fighting government-run healthcare in the reform efforts being debated in Congress. While critics cite Scott's past as a reason not to take him seriously, others say that his vast knowledge of the healthcare system makes him more qualified than most people to weigh in on the debate.
