More North Texas health care companies could be left in critical condition in 2018

The so-called “restructuring epidemic” in the healthcare sector is projected to only get worse, and health care businesses in Texas are already among the most frequent to find themselves in critical condition.

There were a slew of bankruptcies filed in Texas in 2017, including Lewisville’s Adeptus Health, which owns free-standing emergency rooms, Walnut Hill Medical Center in Dallas, and nursing home operator Preferred Care, based in Plano.

Confusion over another major revamp of the nation’s health care legislation was among the challenges cited by health care providers this year, including Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare, one of the country’s largest hospital chains. With losses piling up and facing a proxy fight, it jettisoned its CEO and announced it might sell some profitable assets.

And there’s evidence to suggest that consumers may be foregoing care as they take on more of the cost burden in high-deductible health insurance plans.

2. Maybe, when folks

are sick they should go to one of tRump's golf clubs? Ask about getting help, instead of paying taxes to keep his large orange arse on vacation? ANYONE who votes gop (unless they are filthy rich) needs a mental exam, along with their useless "leader"

3. Its rural America

That'll be hurt the worse from the trump and gop tax scam, destroying their health care systems, and most will be trump supporters. Tack on they're destroying Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security, and it will snowball on them damaging the economy , and forcing them to close. Again we'll hear like W said, the economy is great, when its clearly not, unless you're really wealthy. This time it'll be much worse, and they know it. Even Rubio has admitted as much, and he's the one who put into the omnibus bill a provision raising ACA premiums right before the 2016 election. They screwed up.
