Should Hospitals Be Run by Doctors?
New York Times

Are the best hospitals run by medical doctors or business managers?

The conventional wisdom is that doctors should focus on patient care, and managers with a business or administrative background are better suited to running the day-to-day operations of a hospital. Among the nearly 6,500 hospitals in the United States, only 235 are run by physician administrators, according to a 2009 study in the journal Academic Medicine.
