They are required to provide care for people who don't have any money. No hospital can do that without a subsidy from the govt that mandates such revenue-free activity.

Having said that, it puzzles me why they feel getting money from the state is considered an entitlement? Its the hennepin county medical center, and they should look to the county for funding to meet county mandates.
