Original Massachusetts Mission Statement
We are a group of doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals responding to the moral crisis in health care in which the values of the market are placed above the needs of patients. While critical of "market medicine", we do not deny the failings of the fee-for-service system that preceded it. We believe there is a range of possible solutions to the crisis, which should be fully and openly explored. We plan, using a broad range of approaches, to educate and mobilize the public, stimulate debate, and encourage the country to move toward a more humane and equitable system which guarantees universal access to health care.
