The article presents an outlook for the U.S. healthcare sector for 2005. Experts predict that although the outlook for nonprofit hospitals in 2005 is better than in the past few years, there's still a long way to go for an absolute turnaround in the sector. They predict that the stabilization that many hospitals have received due to the Medicare Modernization and Drug Act passed in 2003 and an improved economic climate will be short-lived. Industry insiders suggest that the reimbursements many hospitals are getting from the U.S. federal government are about to decrease.
