Surgery centers say MA state regs give hospitals unfair advantage

Boston Herald, April 16, 2012

At issue, according to Linda Rahm, president of the Massachusetts Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers, is a proposed regulation by the Department of Public Health that would require ASCs to obtain state approval known as a "determination of need" before expanding.
