Is the healthcare industry focused on the business side of healing or the people they care for?

This seemingly simple, yet at times taboo question, brings multiple answers depending where you fall inside the healthcare spectrum. As a patient, one may assume a hospital's main priority focuses on solely increasing revenue, where as a healthcare professional may completely disagree, citing their personal driving factor of genuinely assisting an individual in need. Could it be possible both trains of though exist, simultaneously? And if so, which one should take precedent? On this episode, we're sitting down with System Chief Nursing Officer of St. Vincent Health Cindy Adams to tackle this tough question.
