I agree that medicine is a business, but disagree about the reason rural hospitals send patients to larger facilities. It IS about the skills of the staff and having access to the most up to date diagnostics and newer, more sophisticated treatments. A hospital in a town of 10,000 just can't afford the latest and greatest, and really good physicians do not gravitate to rural backwaters for obvious reasons.
