Last Solo Doctor In Toledo Sells To Promedica


(Toledo, OH) The last remaining physician with a practic not purchased by Toledo's health care conglomerates caved in this week and accepted a lucrative offer from Promedica.

"The handwriting was on the wall, and I knew that I could ill afford to compete with these massive corporations," said Dr. Patrick Navin of Toledo. "Hey - I've still got med school loans to pay off. Why kill myself scratching out a living when I can make twice as much money at half the time?"

Promedica Healthcare, with over 15,000 employees, 2,700 doctors, and operating in 23 counties, is the largest healthcare provider in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.

Navin said that he had little choice in accepting the "offer that could not be refused."

"These people do not screw around. They came in with six guys who looked like linebackers, and they were packing heat," he said. "The lead negotiator told me flat out: 'bad things can happen to good people, you know what I mean?' I can read between the lines."

So, Promedica has Navin doing piece work these days?
