A good deal of well-deserved opprobrium has been directed at the University of Chicago Medical Center pursuant to its patient-dumping scheme. The latest criticism comes from the American College of Emergency Physicians:
ACEP’S president, criticized the hospital’s Urban Health Initiative, which diverts patients to clinics and hospitals on the South Side. Jouriles said the hospital is trying to “cherry pick” wealthy patients over poor.
What has gone unnoticed, for the most part, is the role our new First Lady played in formulating that disgraceful program. As the Chicago Sun-Times reported last August:
Barack Obama’s wife and three close advisers have been involved with a program at the University of Chicago Medical Center that steers patients who don’t have private insurance — primarily poor, black people — to other health care facilities.
And Mrs. Obama wasn’t the only close associate of our new President who was involved in this patient-dumping program. I go into much greater detail over at the American Thinker.
The Hannity people interviewed me for a segment on this dumping program. Go here to see it.
