‘Catholic’ Hospitals vs. Hospitals: Rediscovering the Difference

 Dr. Andrew Agwunobi writes “The challenge of the times for Catholic hospitals is not how to improve the value of care, but how to demonstrate the value of the designation “Catholic” in “Catholic hospitals.” I know, because I’ve been privileged to manage Catholic hospitals, serve as a board member for them, and — as a consultant — advise them on reducing costs and improving quality of care. I also happen to be Catholic, which I hasten to clarify is about as important to this topic as being Cambodian; it’s an unbending characteristic of Catholic hospitals to embrace all people and faiths, so in Catholic hospitals, you get no inner-circle status for being Catholic. I only mention it because it is one reason why I care about the future of Catholic hospitals.” More.
