Hospitality at our Hospitals

by Hattie Nuff

I know. They’re there when we really need them, thank the good Lord. But something’s gotta change. Fact is, we don’t need health care reform. We need health cost reform and health administration reform. First you get hit with big charges that are only hinted at prior to the “procedure.” Then all that mystifying... Read »

by Hattie Nuff
