Dailies on the Hospital Commission
November 29th, 2006

The dailies’ editorial boards weigh in on the state hospital commission’s final report, and most like what they see:

New York Times: “Charged with trying to reform and reorder one of the most expensive and inefficient health care systems in the country, it has come up with a bold and intelligent set of recommendations.”

Daily News: “A special state panel has laid out a credible plan for reforming New York’s vast, creaking, wasteful, inefficient health care system … Many predicted a firestorm, but the big players have kept their guns holstered, recognizing, one hopes, that it’s time to drag New York health care into the 21st century.”

New York Post: “A state panel yesterday made a compelling case for streamlining New York’s bloated hospital system – but then it punted, leaving the most serious problems to be solved some other day.”

Newsday: “It represents a significant first step toward an absolutely necessary restructuring of the system. In its most fundamental recommendations – that this state must close some hospitals, make more rational use of facilities that remain open and find alternatives to long-term care in nursing homes – it is right on the mark.”
