Ken Paulus: What I want from health care

[Star Tribune, October 06, 2009] I want everyone to have health insurance and access to health care services. Health care is a right, not a privilege. The United States is a country built on capitalism and self-reliance, yet compassion is valued in equal measure. My neighbor who was laid off deserves coverage; the single mother without benefits deserves coverage, and the poor, disabled individual with a preexisting condition deserves coverage -- plain and simple. Ken Paulus, president and CEO, Allina Hospitals & Clinics shares his vision for the ideal health system in a commentary in today's Star Tribune.
