Bad News for Denver

Sisters of Charity get control of Exempla hospitals:
The long-disputed sale of Exempla Lutheran and Good Samaritan hospitals to the Kansas-based Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System has been settled, the parties announced today.

The sale makes Sisters of Charity the sole owner of the hospitals and means the hospitals will follow Catholic medical directives — no abortions, tubal ligations, vasectomies or a range of other reproductive services now available at the nonsectarian Lutheran and Good Samaritan hospitals.
This is one reason why genuine, comprehensive socialized healthcare would be nice, instead of just universal coverage.

Even universal coverage isn't worth a damn if private hospitals won't provide the services you need.
