So, as I understood it, HealthONE, the largest hospital consortium in CO, was controlled by a non-profit, CHF, but HCA, the largest for-profit hospital corp in the USA, bought them out of their share.
HCA is based in TN, has over 160 hospitals and 100 other facilities nationwide. HCA is publicly traded, listed on NYSE (HCA), IPO was Q1 this year and market cap is over $17B!!!
HealthONE has the most hospitals in CO: Swedish, Rose, Med Center of Aurora, North Suburban, PSL, Skyridge, Spalding Rehab, RRMC, and a bunch of other smaller facilities.
What are the implications of this for patients and RNs?
