At least 12 more hospitals have closed this year in rural areas alone. More are getting out the plywood to nail over windows and barricades for doors. Don’t worry, it’s just the new normal under Obamacare, says Lee Hieb, M.D. “Events happening now give us some idea of what medicine will be reduced to in the future,” Hieb writes in her forthcoming book, “Surviving the Medical Meltdown: Your Guide to Living Through the Disaster of Obamacare.” “Today, all over America, small and midsize hospitals as well as hospitals in inner-city, poor areas are closing,” she said. Hieb is an orthopedic surgeon and past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
