Seems strange for hospitals to expect employers to just continue paying for all this expansion. Hospitals certainly don't expect Medicare and Medicaid to help out even with a huge expansion in the Medicaid program. At some point employers will say enough is enough. There are plenty of facilities overseas providing first class care to meet demand.
