Microreview: The Hospital: Life, Death, and Dollars in A Small American Town by Brian Alexander

As an independent hospital in the small town of Bryan, Ohio fights to survive, so do the people who live there. A lack of adequate insurance and the time and money needed to stay on top of chronic conditions costs lives. The author’s focus is broader than the title suggests and the book provides a history of hospitals in the United States while it shows the dire effects of manufacturing jobs leaving Ohio.
