Micro-hospitals are popping up around the country, but many providers still lack a solid understanding of what a micro-hospital is and how it can help satisfy emerging needs in their markets.
"The definition of what is and what isn't a micro-hospital has also expanded significantly," said Vic Schmerbeck, executive vice president of strategy and business development at Emerus, a leading micro-hospital operator, during a March 30 webinar hosted by Becker's Hospital Review.
