Thoughts on Michael’s post on “Hospital.”

July 26, 2007 at 1:40 pm (Uncategorized)

I know this is a blog on healthcare, but I think there’s a similar issue plaguing education.  Working at KIPP this year, I’m just realizing that sustainability is absolutely critical to any organization.  I’m finding more and more, that poor and underserved children simply need dedicated teachers who are willing to put in the long hours and make many sacrifices in their own lives.  There are certainly the inherent rewards of getting kids back on track and hopefully opening the doors to many opportunities, but is that enough?  I think your point on serving the poor in the medical world is facing a very similar predicament.  Can we rely on having people with great hearts and an undying dedication to serving the most needy, or do we need to figure out a way to recruit and retain people who otherwise would not strongly consider such direction in their vocations?  Maybe we need Charter Hospitals with private investors?  Can money go that far?  What’s the incentive?
