Hospitals: A church-based profile isn’t for free

„Profile isn’t for free“ is the title of an article in the latest edition of “neue caritas” magazine (4/2016) by myself and Winfried Hinzen. Its full version can be downloaded here with the necessary password. Our assumption is quite simple: In order to fulfill the high claims denominational hospitals have towards themselves, a lot of time (and employees) are required for deep personal contact with the patients  – a lot more than is covered by insurance rates.  Three of many possible ways to refinance these additional costs are presented in our article. If you have questions or remarks, I am happy about feedback.
