These hospitals suck. What would it cost them to treat emergencies? They ask for huge amounts of money - all profit - and justify it by showing "non payment" as a loss. But that's virtually only profit they would have lost, there's very little actual cost difference between them treating someone or turning someone away. And Friedland's sanctimonious "sanctity of life" story is bullshit, purely for PR purposes: They INSTRUCT their staff not to do a damned thing until that huge amount is paid. Ask the receptionist about what "discretion" she has: None.
