“Regional Healthcare Building Boom Defies Recession” – But not skyrocketing premium increases

I’m always amazed at stories like this one in the Triangle’s “lifestyle” magazine, Metro this month. Does anyone connect this story detailing all these new medical facilities – especially extravagant ones like the ECU heart center pictured – with the inexorable rise in their health premiums? Our health premiums have more than doubled in the last ten years after all. Everyone would like something for nothing but, as in most other areas, that’s just not possible in health care.

    Thanks for sharing. Not only are they extravagant, they are next door to another perfectly good hospital
