Some US Hospitals are raking in a profit

Despite the recent drop in patient admissions to US hospitals, several facilities seem to be raking in a profit.  One of the most profitable hospitals currently in the US is Flowers Medical Center in Dothan, Ala.

Some critics are attributing this huge increase in profits to certain hospitals acting as “monopolies”, with the ability to overcharge insurance companies and patients.  On the flip side of this issue, proponents of these profitable hospitals are claiming that these profits are coming from improved quality of medical care.  However, due to this down economy, it is quite possible that these profits will decrease again.  For more on this topic, check out this article in Forbes, America’s Most Profitable Hospitals
