More doctors, nurses becoming hospital administrators

Star-Telegram, October 14, 2013

Take a close look at how medical care is being delivered, and it's clear that doctors and hospitals are being asked to work more closely together to maintain quality even as payments start to shrink. If that's the case, would it help if more hospital administrators were also clinicians – doctors, nurses and other health professionals? Quite a few in the industry apparently think so. Today, Tarrant County has the unusual circumstance of its two biggest hospitals, Texas Health Harris Methodist Fort Worth and Baylor All Saints, being headed by clinicians. Both hospitals are in the Fort Worth medical district.
