Lown Presents: The Promise of a Cooperative Hospital Sector, Lessons From the Pandemic
During the pandemic, hospitals in some regions cooperated to ensure that Covid-19 patients got the care they needed -- spurred in some cases by state requirements that they do so. In other parts of the country, hospitals in poorer areas overflowed with Covid-19 patients despite nearby hospitals in more affluent communities having empty beds.

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that the health of each of us matters. But is a competitive hospital market the best way to ensure every person gets the care they need?

This conversation will explore the costs of our fragmented system, and the financial and regulatory forces that created it. We'll talk with health policy experts and hospital leaders about what an integrated hospital sector would look like, and how it might be achieved.
