If one fact has come out crystal clear from the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, it is the critical importance of the physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners who have been working on the front-lines of this health care problem. Day in and day out, these brave men and women work for the betterment of their fellow man and we applaud them.

Yet over the past few decades, the doctor’s temple, the hospital, has been corrupted by the exploiters of our health care system. Recent news about hospitals firing physicians and cutting salaries during this pandemic merely highlights a critical problem we Americans have long swept under the rug: hospitals’ primary function is no longer to cure the sick, but rather to make money. As a result, massive consolidation of our health care delivery system combined with perversion of current regulatory structure is exacerbating the current coronavirus pandemic.
