Benefits and controveries

To avoid financial losses due to shrinking reimbursements and rising costs as well as improving quality of care and avoid duplication of services, hospitals may consolidate certain services at one hospital. However, patients may need to travel further if those services are no longer offered at their local hospital. [2]
