This paper reviews identifying characteristics of the urban public hospital and discusses some of the chronic problems, such as funding, image, constituency and acceptance, that this institution has faced. Alternative courses of action for dealing with these problems are considered. No single solution is recommended for every community, but suggestions are made about how to address specific areas of concern.
