- Crisis at General Hospital
- Program Number
- Series Description
FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.
- Program Description
The threat of for-profit hospital on public hospitals' ability to provide health care to indigents. Most Americans regard health care as a social responsibility undertaken for the common good. We assume government and charity programs will allow for everyone with serious health problems, no matter how poor, to be provided treatment. FRONTLINE examines how many investor-owned, for-profit hospital chains are aggressively marketing themselves to treat only the insured, or wealthy, patient.
