Mortality rises when ERs close, forcing patients to drive further

September 2019

“Smaller, and more times than not, physician-owned healthcare facilities provide care in a way that larger health systems cannot.

Closure of Emergency Rooms and the subsequent driving distance required by patients negatively affects health and well-being as well as causing an increase in costs”.”
