What's next for MD Anderson?

Fellow Vivian Ho, director of the Center for Health and Biosciences, is interviewed about MD Anderson's financial outlook following Ron DePinho's resignation as president of the top-ranked cancer hospital.

Whoever takes over will have a tough challenge, she told the Houston Chronicle. "Insurance companies and employers have said enough is enough to the crazy price-raising by hospitals. They've passed the cost onto beneficiaries and workers in terms of high deductible and high co-pay health plans and locking out high-cost hospitals like MD Anderson."
