The issue is clear: Do the hospitals exist primarily as corporations (business entities), of primary concern only as "private preserves" governed solely as their administrators wish?Or do the hospitals exist primarily as facilities for medical aid to the public; as instrumentalities for physicians to use in aiding the public? Put otherwise, the issue is: Do doctors exist for the convenience of hospitals, or hospitals for the convenience of doctors? Should public interests or hospital management interests come first?The answers are obvious. The law as it is now is contrary to the public's interests.
