The Bottom Line: Hospitals as Economic Engines

Feb 15, 2013

Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for a weekly business segment we're calling "The Bottom Line." Each Friday it looks at business news and themes that affect local business and the public.

This week Dave and Mark talk with Hospital Association of Rhode Island president Edward Quinlan. They discuss the association’s new report listing hospitals as the top RI economic engine, with $6.7 million in the annual economic impact. They also look at the potential economic impacts of the Affordable Health Act to local hospitals, plus how the sales of Westerly and Landmark hospitals may affect the health care industry.
