Although better positioned than most industries, healthcare is not immune to the woes
that are plaguing the rest of the economy. Healthcare finance executives face many
challenges in '09 including: bad debt, shrinking charity care, federal reimbursement
shortfalls, and expense management issues. Many are hopeful that the new president and administration will make changes to help alleviate these fiscal maladies though all are preparing for the worst.
