Quotes

The letter states that "Partners' 20-year track record of integration paired with high prices and high medical costs casts serious doubt upon its assertions that the proposed acquisitions would yield substantial efficiencies, let alone of the magnitude necessary to outweigh the alleged anticompetitive effects."
...Gottlieb responded to the editorial with a letter to the editor , touting the system's accolades in innovation, science, education and quality. "We have made the commitment to cap our prices and restrict our physician and hospital growth. As a result, we will become the most regulated health care provider in Massachusetts, if not the country" Mr. Gottlieb wrote
...intensely curious -- always eager to hear the views and ideas of others -- and a masterful storyteller," stated an obituary released by his son. "A highly esteemed public intellectual, for years a frequent commentator on national television, he has been widely considered one of the most creative intellectual leaders of our times."
"When the storm passed through it looks like the tree was struck by lightning back there, came down, went on top of the house, several holes in the roof but it looks like the lightning fell from the tree right into the gas main going into the building" Melrose Fire Department Captain John White said
