    Discovering Tomorrow’s Cures

    The integration of patient care with the best in medical education and research is the basis for much of what we take for granted in medicine today. As key centers of research, teaching hospitals are responsible for critical medical breakthroughs. From new approaches in prevention and diagnosis to successful treatments and cures, the advances pioneered at these institutions dramatically improve the health of our community. The list of medical firsts that were pioneered at America’s medical schools and teaching hospitals are long and distinguished. To name a few:

    * The development of coronary angioplasty,
    * The first pediatric trauma center
    * The development of artificial skin made from living human cells
    * The first human images with an MRI
    * The first live polio vaccine
    * The first successful bone marrow transplant
    * The first intensive care unit for newborns
    * The first human gene therapy for cystic fibrosis
    * The first successful pediatric heart transplant
    * The first to discover that adult heart diseases begin in childhood

    Your Academic Teaching Hospital — University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso

    The region's teaching hospitals collectively receive about $1.4 billion annually in federal grants, more than any other group of healthcare institutions in the country.

    Funding slowdown worries hospitals - The Boston Globe






    No direct dollars in grants at teaching hospitals and not private business.




    Paying for it is paying for it. And too often real choice is limited. How much competition is there between oil companies? They are large and yet all prices are nearly the same despite large profits for each company. How about insurance companies? Any real difference in cost between companies? When Walmart puts everyone out of business, will costs go up or down?



    Don't ignore anything. Those regulations served a real purpose and made things better than they were. bureaucracies are the costs of doing business. The alternative was to have lakes catch fire, eat tainted meat, suffer from poisoned Peanut butter. History shows us buyer beware means someone or something will be hurt without regulations, government involvement. Are you going to ignore that clear history?
    Teaching hospitals doesn't guarantee an increase in the number of doctors. Why would anyone become a doctor in this environment? Seems to me that doctors leaving the business is quite telling.

    This was about R&D. Stay focused. And there is no evidence any doctors are actually leaving the profession. I would love you to present some actual evidence they are. I doubt you can.

    But how much government helps individuals afford medical school, and how much the AMA stops resisting new doctors will make a difference. There is good reason to expect more doctors coming into the profession.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Speculation, rosey scenario, and hope is all you have. Your faith in the govt. is incredible in spite of their incredibly poor record of producing results. As is typical, just throw money at the problem yet never solve it. Great philosophy. Hope you never go into business for yourself. Being a wage slave is what you seem to do best, no investment, no risk taking, and thus no understanding of how business works.

    You realize that you're not addressing any point don't you?

    Yep, addressing the points, giving you actual numbers, pointing out history doesn't matter to you as you simply are brainwashed into believing what you are told. Waste of time.

    Except for the main point.

    The fundamental difference between a liberal and a conservative.
    One believes that the govt can do better, one that people can do better.
    One is wrong and one is right.

    That's not even the main point. You're presenting a partisan stereotype that ignores a lot. People are the government. The government is often us working together to solve problems. There's no magical entity here. It's people working together through our legislative body. The for profit private sector has a different mission. Nothing wrong with their mission, but it is not the same one.

    In other words, you're not really addressing anything.

    No, you're side stepping. Government dollars actually contribute heavily to R&D.

    So who contributes more, Govt. or the private sector? You really don't understand how our economy works, do you? Ever run a business or are you simply a "wage" slave expert who tells everyone else that they are wrong?

    I ran that 200 million a year business that actually employed people. I understand people, behavior, and the shortcomings of govt. The basic role of govt. is to protect us, not provide for us. At no time in history did govt. social spending ever solve a problem. They always cost more and do less yet your answer is buy this group of liberal's rhetoric while ignoring history.

    Contribute more to what? They have different missions. Apples and oranges. You make a mistake in thinking it is either one or the other.
