Could anyone help me understand why a successful suburban hospital that brings in quite a bit of money through the services it provides should still be receiving a large taxpayer subsidy, rather than operating like a normal, private, unsubsidized non-profit hospital?

To answer your question with a question - Why should they operate independently when they can get their normal income plus also get taxpayer money and not have any accountability to taxpayers?
Why is there a hospital corporation? Shouldn't the hospital district own the hospital directly without this intermediate unaccountable layer? The school district owns the schools and the city owns city hall and the water district owns its wells and the community college district owns the colleges.

Hey Bo! Can you elaborate? Especially on the "personnel" vendettas? Or is it personal? Not trying to be a grammar snob, I'm just wondering if you mean he goes after hospital personnel (hospital employees) he doesn't like or if you mean he is pursuing personal vendettas (that could be outside the hospital).
