SPOTLIGHT: For-profits see rising uncompensated care numbers

According to a new analysis, for-profit hospitals are struggling to deal with uncompensated care, too. While the for-profit hospital sector has cut the percentage of uncompensated care it delivers from 18.4 percent of adjusted net revenue in the third quarter of 2007 to 17.8 percent for the fourth quarter, that fourth quarter number is 1.2 percent higher than the same quarter in 2006. Financial article
