Hi! I am Cathy Wentz. I have started this blog because of my passion for freedom in the way that medical and surgical care are delivered and paid for. My experience includes working as a full-time, multi-subject reporter (one of my beats was health care) for The Spectrum/Cedar City Daily News in Cedar City, Utah. I have most recently worked for Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Specialty Clinic and Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center where I have learned how patients can be deprived of their choice in physicians and much freedom because of the perfect storm of Obamacare implementation and anti-competitive behavior by large hospital systems. My goal is to show people how the free market in medical care will vastly out-perform government controlled health care and, I believe, bring down the cost of medical care while providing improved access for everyone, especially the middle class and poor. Join me as we (hopefully) take a journey into the delivery of high-quality and more affordable health care.
