    The hospitals have eaten most of the private practices in other medical specialties as well. My brother sold his practice to his hospital a couple of years ago. I asked him why. He didn’t want to invest in electronic medical record systems. He was tired of dealing with medicaid and medicare. The Hospital was willing to pay him more than he was making, and to take his capital off his hands. He was thrilled. Will his patients pay more. Maybe, but he never sees the final bills anyway.
