Prognosis '96 Health Care


Industry Outlook -- Services: HEALTH CARE

PROGNOSIS '96--HEALTH CARE

Positives

-- For-profit hospitals should continue to gain market share and see admissions rise modestly.

-- Well-managed nursing homes will pick up business as hospital stays continue to shrink.

Negatives

-- Rising cost pressure from managed care, plus lower Medicare and Medicaid rates, will keep a squeeze on margins.

-- Health-care reform hasn't addressed the uninsured, who will put an even greater strain on the system.Return to top
