Each of the 16 chapters potentially stand alone in value to the reader, but together they integrate public health and medical care delivery topics effectively... Whatever comes to pass until the release of the next edition, this text will certainly poise future healthcare leaders to steady themselves for the rapidly changing healthcare environment.
Zachary Pruitt, PhD, Journal of Health Administration Education
Health care managers, practitioners, and students must both operate as effectively as they can within the daunting and continually evolving system at hand and identify opportunities for reform advances... Health Care Delivery in the United States has been an indispensable companion to those preparing to manage this balance. The present edition demonstrates once again why this volume has come to be so prized. It takes the long view charting recent developments in health policy, and putting them side-by-side with descriptions and analysis of existing programs in the United States and abroad."
