30% of their patients are on medicare/medicaid.
Where are they going to go?
Who's going to provide their healthcare?
Oh, that's right. The government.
The government already provides for their care. What do you think Medicare and Medicaid are? Catholic hospitals are nonprofits, but that doesn't mean they are charities. It just means they don't sell their stock on public markets and their profits (yes, they make profits) remain internal.
