Will public hospitals survive?

In this current economic environment, will public hospitals survive?  They don’t always have the proper financial resources to survive and make the necessary equipment upgrades for the best medical services.

As solo hospitals, they are not always able to take advantage of contracts from insurance companies to increase their revenue like larger health systems are able to do.  With this current economy and the advent of the new health care reform law, will these solo public hospitals be able to survive or will they slowly become extinct and overshadowed by the bigger health systems and possibly even by new government run hospitals?  For more on this topic, read this Wall Street Journal article, Cash-Poor Governments Ditching Public Hospitals
