    Article - En anglais

    While passage of a health care bill remains uncertain, the structure of health care in the United States is nonetheless changing rapidly.

    In some cases, physicians and hospitals are working more closely with one another to provide high-quality care at lower costs.

    Patients, physicians, hospitals, and insurers (including the Federal government) can all benefit from such an arrangement.

    Lukes Episcopal Hospital in Houston, Texas.
