Overview

Over the past decade, an increasing number of California hospitals have been purchased by large multihospital corporations. Type of ownership may affect hospital costs and income, access to care, patient outcomes, perceptions of trustworthiness, and the provision of community benefits, such as charity care. Yet, little is known about the effects of hospital ownership in California. To shed light on this issue, the authors track ownership changes in short-term general hospitals from 1986 to 1996, describe the major hospital corporations in California, examine regional patterns of hospital ownership, and discuss the policy issues salient to for-profit hospitals and multihospital firms.
