Massachusetts hospital executives cool to call for $100 million

Boston Globe, April 15, 2010

Massachusetts hospital executives are reviewing state Senate President Therese Murray's call for providers to contribute $100 million to help reduce soaring healthcare costs paid by small businesses, the Boston Globe reports. But they made no commitment to follow the lead of Partners HealthCare, which has pledged $40 million this year. Gary Gottlieb, MD, president of Partners, whose Boston teaching hospitals have been blamed for helping to drive up medical spending, said that the organization decided to make the one-time commitment because it "wanted people to understand that we wanted to become part of the solution."
