Given the current socio-political climate of the healthcare situation in America, you are likely on one side of the fence or the other. You either believe it has helped the people or hindered them. You either believe the medical industry has become better off or not. You either believe doctors are better prepared to treat your conditions or they’re not. There is no room for gray. This situation is black and white.
That said, there’s a new book just released called Orwell’s Hospital by a Dallas, TX-based cardiologist named Federico (“Fred”) Maese that is likely to kick this controversial topic into overdrive. While the book never says “US Healthcare” and is very careful to never point fingers or name names, it is clearly an indictment on the current state of healthcare and sets about to right the wrongs with a very real-world plan of action set in the fictional town of Greenwell. Dr. Maese was not available for comment, but suffice to say his plan, as outlined in the book by some fictional do-gooder country doctors, has merit if only everyone can get together in the same room without chaos ensuing. I guess that’s the catch, isn’t it?
If for nothing else, grab Orwell’s Hospital on Amazon to get an interesting look into the US healthcare timeline from the beginning to where we are today.
