Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Shifts the focus away from high-profile doctors and introduces us to people no less essential--the workers, without whom no hospital could function. Reveals the workings of a contemporary health-care facility. As debate in Canada rages over funding cuts and a health-care system said to be in crisis, Hospital city is a moving, human portrait of the people whom the debates most closely touch.
