ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case, published in "American Medical News," wherein a state trial court in Arkansas determined that it was improper for a hospital to use a credentialing policy that denied admitting privileges to physicians with interest in their competitors. The case involved Baptist Health's decision to implement an economic conflict-of-interest policy in 2003. This resulted in the loss of privileges for 12 staff cardiologists who owned the specialty facility Arkansas Heart Hospital.
