Atlanta ain't the biggest problem Georgia has

Wapo, via Charlie Pierce:

“We may have to start lopping off services that are not economically rewarding,” said Doug Patten, Phoebe [Putney Health System's] chief medical officer, [the nonprofit group that runs six hospitals in southwestern Georgia.]  “We probably have been overly permissive in the past in saying, ‘Yes, we will take care of you.’ ”
Trying to take care of people was the health system's first mistake.  Everybody knows people are too damned expensive.
