Default Re: Retronym Edition (Mark Schmitt & Tim Noah)

It will never be the case that people who show up to private hospitals for emergency care will be turned away, because private hospitals are still part of a public infrastructure, and are given all kinds of zoning and tax exemptions to reflect that.

Private hospitals in America aren't *actually* private in the way that, say, a GP's office is. They're more like football stadiums and convention centers -- they get preferential treatment over less-vital business along with the expectation that they can build value for the community.
