To a Hammer the World Is a Nail

The hospital industry has spent nearly $100 billion in inflation adjusted dollars in the past five years on new facilities, up 47% from the previous five years, according to the Census Bureau and reported by USA Today. The new hospitals feature private rooms, more technology and suburban locations.

If you had the dollars to spend and your goal was to achieve the best health status possible for your community, how would you spend the money?
