    Well argued piece
    Health care institutions should be in the forefront … in financial investments and also plant operations. In setting standards for building healthcare payers also have an influential role that can be leveraged . There are many new hospitals and like long term care rebuilds in our future – let’s set the standards for health.

    btw – I trust horse was your mode of travel when you went to your last ‘echo chamber’ conference – you wouldn’t want to be killing the planet with a plane ride
