Physicians Foundation survey examines doctor reactions and involvement in health care consolidation.

This month, The Physicians Foundation published its “2023 Survey of America’s Current and Future Physicians,” a portrait of health care over the last year as seen by doctors and medical students.
Physicians, hospitals, and health systems must make money to keep the doors open, the lights on, and staff available to help. But there are different financial policies and levels of control, and physicians are not entirely optimistic about private equity investors buying into health care.
This slide show presents physician feelings about finances from The Physicians Foundation 2023 survey.
