Hospitals west of Boston ramp up amenities

Boston Globe, October 8, 2009

Joe Kirkpatrick, senior vice president for healthcare finance and managed care at the Massachusetts Hospital Association, told the Boston Globe that many healthcare centers in the state have begun reinvesting in their infrastructure in recent years after a long dry spell between 1995 and 2005.
