Hospital Concierge Care Stirs Debate

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 9, 2016

Following news Massachusetts General Hospital will open a concierge practice in August that will charge patients $6,000 per year for exclusive service, the concept is gaining attention.

Supporters suggest it’s a smart way for hospitals to draw more revenue, while detractors argue it creates a tiered system of healthcare that favors the rich.

Is your hospital considering concierge care? How would you market such a service in a way to minimize concerns?
