  1. Can you please tell us who are the doctors who contributed to friends oF Washington Hospital (nee friends of Ms Farber CEO) ?
    It will interesting to find how many of them are receiving desserts from the hospital. Probably they think that their honeymoon days may come to the end if there is a change in board of directors.
    Will the coterie meet defeat in elections? Probably not. Things probably will go on the same way. It is difficult to defeat money power.
    The public will keep on paying exorbitant hospital bills with increasing executive salaries
