The hospital industry in the 1970s was the largest industry in the U.S. that created over $1 trillion in revenues. The industry grew from just over 20,000 licensed beds in 1978, to over 80,000 beds in 1985, to over 100,000 beds in 1987.
In the 1980s, due to the growing size of the industry and the demands from Medicare, the health care law passed in 1983 created a strict quota system that required hospitals to be more profitable. This meant that hospitals had to reduce the amount of beds they needed to operate. This decreased the number of licensed beds from over 80,000 beds in 1987 to just over 60,000 beds in 1989.
The change in bed count was part of a larger downsizing process in the hospital industry. Since hospitals were required to meet a certain bed count, they were forced to close hospitals. By the end of the decade, the number of licensed beds was just over 60,000. This meant the hospital industry was in a state of decline.
That’s right, the industry began its downward spiral in the 1980s. After the baby boomers retired, the baby busters began leaving the country. The baby busters moved away from the western states. This left the hospital industry in a bad, bad shape. At the same time hospital beds were rapidly dropping. By the end of the decade, the hospital industry was close to being out of business. It wasn’t because of a lack of demand.
What we’ve learned is that the baby busters werent the cause of the hospital industry’s collapse. It was mainly because of their own self-inflicted wounds. The Baby Busters did what they did by leaving the community, not staying. They left the community in a bad, bad shape. That’s what caused the hospital industry’s decline.
The hospital industrys collapse wasnt entirely the result of baby busters, although it was mainly the result of the Baby Busters leaving the community. The fact that baby busters werent the cause of the hospital industrys decline is another reason why the Baby Busters left the community in a bad, bad shape.
The Baby Busters left the community in a bad, bad shape because they left the community in a bad, bad shape.
In 1982, the baby busters left the community in a bad, bad shape because they left the community in a bad, bad shape. Thats what prompted the Baby Busters to leave the community in a bad, bad shape. It wasnt about the baby busters leaving the community in a bad, bad shape. It wasnt even about the baby busters leaving the community in a bad, bad shape.
The Baby Busters were just the tip of the iceberg. Baby busters were babies who were not born when the Baby Busters left the community in a bad, bad shape and were not always part of the Baby Busters. Baby busters were often very ill. In fact, the Baby Busters are responsible for creating the term “baby busters” because it became fashionable for baby busters to complain about hospital problems. Baby busters were also much more likely to be women.
Baby busters may have been a response to the Baby Busters’ departure from the community, but they were also motivated by the Baby Busters themselves. Many Baby Busters were women who got pregnant and became ill and needed to leave the community. Then the Baby Busters would come out and start complaining about hospital problems in the community.
