New Documentary Exposes Hospital Monopolies
A new documentary that exposes hospital monopolies and their impact on costs and patients is set to premiere this weekend.
According to a press release for the film “InHospitable,” directed by Sandra C. Alvarez, “follows patients and activists as they band together to fight UPMC, a multi-billion dollar nonprofit hospital system that was limiting vital care for hundreds of thousands of vulnerable patients in western Pennsylvania.”
UPMC officials Friday did not acknowledge a request for comments about the film.
“UPMC, a multi-billion dollar nonprofit hospital system, has been building a healthcare empire in Western Pennsylvania for years. In 2019, their corporate feuding with competitor Highmark left hundreds of thousands of patients without vital care,” the release for the documentary states.
