What I read of this was quite good. It got bogged down sometimes in detail, but the main reason I didn't finish was lack of time - I want it to travel in the Medicine Chest bookbox.

It was interesting to read about the multicultural population serviced by Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, and the interesting personalities of those who work there.

I do hope to find another copy at some point to finish reading it. But for now, it wants to travel!

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.
