Hospitals, Everywhere!

As we have done the usual incessant driving around the past couple weeks, it has occurred to me that there is a hell of a lot of new construction of new general hospital facilities.

In the OKC area, I can think of no less than five new hospitals: Norman, Midest City outside Tinker AFB, *two* in Edmond near I-35, and one in north OKC near the Kilpatrick Turnpike. There are also several new specialized facilities, including a new heart hospital on I-240 southwest of Tinker.

I see other new hospitals in places I travel to. All of this leads to wonder why the sudden increase in new care facilities. Is there some sort of tax incentive in place? Or is there anticipation of huge numbers of new patients?
