Healthcare has had a storied past in the United States, and to say that the two have had a complicated relationship would be an egregious understatement. Intertwined in the narrative of our healthcare system is the narrative of United States hospitals, both how they came to be and the nature of their structures. Over time, legislation at local, state, and federal levels has shaped hospital organization and cost-structure. Here, I aim to better understand the effect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and more specifically Medicaid expansion, on hospitals in a handful of Southern states.
