abstract

  • With the escalation of the cost of providing health care in Ontario, politicians have begun to attempt to stay the increase by curtailing hospital funding. This article reports on an interview survey of 15 randomly chosen Ontario hospitals that are attempting to cope in the current funding cutbacks. Overall, we found our sample hospitals to be an innovative group on the whole, which were willing to try out new ideas and adapt to the changing environment while protecting quality of patient care.
