I wonder how many of the Two hundred plus workers loosing their jobs, or area residents whining about loosing the hospital voted for Obama and his retarded policys?

Votes do matter.

This is just the beginning.

Obama's legacy will be the destruction of the greatest health care system in the world.

Couldn't agree more. Healthcare in this country is getting trashed, and will continue to deteriorate moving in the current direction. The Obama program is a disaster, and the American consumer is finally figuring out how bad it is.

I have it on good authority the Strong is hiring most of their physicians (if they can make it through Strong's medical credentialing process - which is very rigorous).

At least many of the MDs will have employment. Unfortunate for the other 200 employees that are out in the cold.

I personally know of four Doctors in the Rochester area that are closing/selling their practices by the end of 2013
Retiring early rather than deal with Obamacare, loose money or work for peanuts.

Some docs are starting to offer "boutique" care to their patients -- if they are willing to pay for a higher level of care (than insurance covers) out of their own pocket.

I think you're going to see this a lot more in the future. Everybody is scrambling to maintain, or hopefully increase, their income. I also think that many MDs will reduce their practices to "loose" the most needy that they can't afford to see (due to the intensity of care they need, much of it non or low billable).

If your PCP fires you (says he is downsizing, please find a new doc), likely you were costing him/her to much time and your insurance carrier was refusing to pay for tests or procedures.

Healthcare is going to get nasty in the next five years.

Good question. I didn't. But the village board is mostly ex Liberal Professors from the College at Brockport. They all whined last year when Unity dared open a medical office building in the Town of Sweden (which is more conservative) that this was a Lakeside town and no competition should be allowed. Now they can't even take care of themselves let alone worry about competition.
