Why there is dislike for administrators

Because at a moment of obviousness, it just isn’t.  Read about the issues at this hospital system (link via Kevin MD).  Dr. Robert E. Khoo offers some steps to success:

What should Memorial do? It could start by listening and responding to physician and nursing concerns, better organize its system of care delivery and health information, focus on the patient not on budget cuts and not bow to pressure from its headquarters in Orange County. The delivery of health care is unique to this community. We are underserved, and the problem is growing.

Sounds simple.  Message: Make delivering health care easier, not more difficult.  Often it’s not this easy, but sometimes it is.
