Abstract

Corporate restructuring has been increasing among the nation's hospitals, but little research has been devoted to assessing how, if at all, this phenomenon affects hospital management and policymaking. This study examines CEO-board relationships in corporately restructured hospitals in relation to more traditionally structured institutions. Analysis of survey responses from 1,179 restructured and 2,010 nonrestructured hospitals indicates that boards of restructured hospitals provide CEOs with greater operational flexibility and control but, at the same time, hold them more accountable for their performance.
