Another political blunder for Pennsylvania?
Republican & Herald, August 28, 2008

The Pottsville Republican & Herald opined on the subject, calling the organization a "valuable public enterprise." Editors added that more so than any other agency nationwide, the Council "has quantified the devastating impact of hospital-acquired infections in terms of patient health and cost to the system."
