    Southwestern Pa. hospital to stop baby deliveries

    WINDBER, Pa. (AP) — A southwestern Pennsylvania hospital will stop delivering babies after March 31... because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.


    Hospital officials say the population of women of child-bearing age is dropping and that the number of births the hospital would be called upon to perform isn't enough for it to provide the service in the face of lower reimbursements under the federal Affordable Care Act.


    The hospital delivered about 200 babies each year since restarting its obstetrics program in 2005

    Socialist care is wonderful isn't it?

    Lowers costs and improves service. Not.

    A distant government that knows nothing about business or your community knows best. Trust them. They've done miracles... like adding 16 trillion in debt, and 60 trillion in unfunded mandates... and have been busy slashing debt like butchers ROTFLOL... Now they're just beginning to sink their teeth into their decades long dream of Socialist health-kare. Oh... I'm just overjoyed by the prospects... aren't you?

    You seem to be mistaking socialism with capitalism. The do not make money delivering babies so they are going to stop. If it were state controlled they would be there because that is a service hospitals provide.

    They can be transported to Altoona, Pittsburgh, or Morgantown I suppose which are close enough. Now if they stopped providing abortions, on the other hand, that is when the liberal poo would hit the fan.

    It would still be lack of profits which is capitalism

    delivering babies so they are going to stop. If it were state controlled they would be there because that is a service hospitals provide.
    A couple of years ago in Dallas's Parkland Hospital 3/4 of the babies born were born to illegal aliens.

    Its hard to stay in bussiness when the State steps in and mandates services.

    I betcha this Hospital is suffering from the same onslaught of leeching illegals looking for a free place to drop an anchor baby. Its just not "Pc" to mention it.

    When I googled info on the town, I was surprised they even have a hospital. It is a small small town.

    Government mandating that services must be rendered regardless of the ability to pay is not Capitalism. Capitalism would be all hospitals not publicly funding being able to kick leeches and moochers out the doors with nothing provided.

    Personally, I like what they are doing. We should have a lot more hospitals/clinics/doctors close their emergency rooms (common way for uninsured to enter the system) and refuse to accept Medicaid. We would see a drastic drop in healthcare costs once all the leeches and moochers are out of the system.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Again, under socialism they would just do it because the are there to do it. What you are talking about is capitalism.
