Man, Woman, Birth, Death, Infinity, Plus Red Tape, Bad Behavior, Money, God, and Diversity on Steroids

A warts-and-all exploration of the struggles suffered and triumphs achieved by America's health-care professionals, Hospital follows a year in the life of Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, which serves a diverse multicultural demographic. Unraveling the financial, ethical, technological, sociological, and cultural challenges encountered every day, bestselling author Julie Salamon tracks the individuals who make this complex hospital run-from doctors, patients, and administrators to nurses, ambulance drivers, cooks, and cleaners. Drawing on her skills as an award-winning interviewer, observer, and social critic, Salamon reveals the dynamic universe of small and large concerns and personalities that, taken together, determine the nature of care in America.

Editorial Reviews

" A first-rate book . . . [Hospital] reads like a novel, elicits equal parts dismay and awe, yet never wavers from truth telling." -Dan Cryer, Newsday " Immensely heartening. . . . If there's hope for our overburdened health care system, Hospital suggests we can thank the decent, thoughtful men and women laboring overtime to improve the quality of life-and death-in our gloriously lumpy American melting pot." -O, The Oprah Magazine
