Can someone educate me about the difference between the hospital district and the hospital corporation? Doesn't the district own the corporation?

@Taxpayer: A key difference is which pots of money each board oversees. The hospital corporation board runs the hospital. The district board deals solely with the tax revenue from the district's residents, doling it out to various community health programs and organizations.
