It is so sweet that moms can start multitasking before they have a chance to leave the TV on during what used to be "family time" during dinner. --1 out of 13 persons in Wright County do not have health insurance. I hope that Buffalo hospital will step up and offer them means catering to patients and families as if they're at catering at the level of "a luxury hotel" including iPod docking stations, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, a soaking tub, rocking chair and refrigerator -- oh, and a place for the baby to sleep, too. --Oh silly me, the hospital website advises "Prior to receiving services at an Allina facility, we recommend that you verify coverage with your health insurance plan."

What if the Buffalo Hospital had spent $7.1 million on lowering their hospital inspections rate? How many fewer people would have been sick if the hospital had passed on the DVD player and original artwork? Why isn't the StarTribune investigating the economic disincentive hospitals have to lower their infection rate?

wars with over the top facilities, including at the U: a new building clocking in at, I believe, a million dollars a bed. Are we building health spas and recreational facilities or places to treat people who are sick? And people wonder why health care is so expensive?

I do have to say that Buffalo Hospital has improved in many ways in the last 3 years as far as care and staff. I don't understand why they would put in a 7.1 million dollar birth center though. For all of those that complain of the cost of treatment well lets see most of it is because of welfare and illegal immigrants that have no health care that come in here and have children or that are sick and Buffalo hospital gives them the care they need without getting paid, why well because we are the ones paying for it....
