In 1992 I was contacted by the editor of the Accent II, Aurora, Colorado’s weekly magazine inserted into the daily paper. At the time, I was serving as the executive director of Humana Hospital Aurora. The topic was health care reform. This same article could be published today with very few tweaks and would be relevant to our current debate on health care reform. Cost, access and quality were consistent themes then, and issues like medical malpractice reform and increased insurance coverage were also on the table.
Let’s hope we see real action taken on health care reform by the end of this year so we are not having this same conversation in 2026.
