Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
An historical biography of the Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound following its meteoric rise from a small group of concerned workers and physicians in 1947 to one of the nation's leading health maintenance organizations. Crowley portrays the Group's idealistic devotion to deliver comprehensive care to ordinary citizens and charge a flat fee for services, promote wellness, and serve the greatest possible number. Many scoffed at the radical idea and worked toward its destruction, but who's laughing now? Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
