Some brief overview of book

An intimate, heart wrenching portrait of one small hospital that reveals the magnitude of Americas health care crises. By following the struggle for survival of one small-town hospital, and the patients who walk, or are carried, through its doors, The Hospital takes readers into the world of the American medical industry in a way no book has done before. Americans are dying sooner, and living in poorer health.

Alexander argues that no plan will solve Americas health crisis until the deeper causes of that crisis are addressed. Bryan, Ohio's hospital, is losing money, making it vulnerable to big health systems seeking domination and Phil Ennen, CEO, has been fighting to preserve its independence. Meanwhile, Bryan, a town of 8,500 people in Ohios northwest corner, is still trying to recover from the Great Recession.

As local leaders struggle to address the towns problems, and the hospital fights for its life amid a rapidly consolidating medical and hospital industry, a 39-year-old diabetic literally fights for his limbs, and a 55-year-old contractor lies dying in the emergency room. With these and other stories, Alexander strips away the wonkiness of policy to reveal Americans struggle for health against a powerful system thats stacked against them, but yet so fragile it blows apart when the pandemic hits.
