Posted Monday, July 28, 2008

Cleveland's MetroHealth System is the safety net for the growing ranks of the region's uninsured, but what to do when the hospital's own fiscal health is slipping? This weekend, The Plain Dealer will examine some possible prescriptions for healing MetroHealth. They range from asking other hospitals to do more to revamping our entire health insurance system. Monday morning at 9, we'll continue the conversation, and you're invited to join us.
