Mayo Clinic chief finds healthcare debate heartbreaking

New York Times, October 2, 2009

Denis A. Cortese, MD, chief executive of the Mayo Clinic, told the New York Times he is disgusted with the current machinations in Washington over how to overhaul the nation's healthcare system. Cortese, who has shared his views with White House officials and some Congressional Democrats, argues that Congress has become too enmeshed in the details. Instead, he said, Congress should try to draft legislation charting an overall direction toward better medical care for the nation, then leave implementation to an organization such as the Department of Health and Human Services.
