Physician-owned hospital winning approval

In Addison, Texas, a physician-owned hospital was built and completed and received their Medicare provider number with only three days to spare before the ban on any new physician-owned hospitals took effect.  This is a new Methodist Hospital for Surgery.

The hospital was scheduled to open in January 2011, but made it before the deadline of Dec. 31st 2010.  The law was passed in March 2010 and prohibited any new physician-owned hospitals opening after Dec. 31, 2010.
