For patients, it’s almost impossible tell the difference between nonprofit and for-profit hospitals.
Why would they provide different levels of care b/c of their non/for profit status? They are run, essentially, the same way. Variations in quality and effeciency have way more to do with culture and administration than where their "profit" goes. Their revenue cycles are exactly the same. Comparing state/county hospitals to private would be a more apt comparison.
Do you think there is a big difference between MD Anderson and Methodist here in Houston simply b/c one is classified as non-profit? No...they are both drowning in money and highly respected for quality care.
Not saying the data isn't true, but the connection is a huge reach.
