UNC Health changes OK'd by state panel
State lawmakers on Tuesday considered a proposal that would give them more control over UNC Health Care and require the hospital system to provide more indigent care. The legislation would put the UNC Board of Governors in charge of UNC Health Care; require the hospital system to obtain legislative approval for most business transactions, including any expansion or purchases; require more public disclosure of the system's finances; require UNC hospitals and clinics to provide a proportional amount of care for low-income patients in counties where they're located; and change the system's mission from patient care and medical research to focus on training doctors.
