University Medical Center To Compete With Commercial Hospitals

University Medical Center CEO Brian Brannman argues that the hospital needs to change its governance system to be able to compete with more efficient commercial hospitals. He has been backed up in that push by the chairman of the Hospital Advisory Board, Dr. Anthony Marlon. Some other members of the board say the governance change is not the big issue and they prefer that the public hospital be governed by existing law. They'll tell us why UMC needs to be subject to the open meeting law and other rules governing public entities.
