    Johnston’s “widely shared” micro-hospital analysis featured in Indianapolis Business Journal

    What makes a hospital a hospital? As explored by the Indianapolis Business Journal’s (IBJ) recent article, “Medicare ruling casts cloud over miniature-hospital movement,” small hospitals are trending around the country. However, whether these facilities are classified as hospitals under Medicare rules remains in question. Bricker Health Care partner David Johnston similarly explored this topic in his 2016 article, “Micro hospital fails to meet the definition of a hospital for Medicare enrollment.” IBJ cites his analysis while exploring the legal nuances of whether micro-hospitals qualify under Medicare rules.
