To the Editor.—The call to action article
by the Ad Hoc Committee to Defend Health Care1
contains some areas that are right on the money and many others that miss
the mark entirely. As the administrator of a small rural hospital, I have
spent more than 25 years working in the not-for-profit sector. What a misnomer.
Who among us is against profit? The simple reality is no bottom line, no mission.
