The article discusses the opinion of health care executives in the U.S. on the idea of transferring to a newly built hospital. According to Nicholas Jacobs, president and chief executive officer (CEO) at Windber Medical Center, he would build the replacement hospital in the suburbs and explain that the hospital's survival is key to continuing to deliver service at both locations. Allan Channing, president and CEO of Mount Sinai Health System says that he would stay in the urban area and look for hospitals with a better payer to help support the hospital.
