The answer to America’s health care problem?

“In the Byzantine Empire the church played an active role in advancing and delivering medical care over the years, through the building of hospitals, hiring of medical staff, organizing amd systematizing care, with benefits accruing to the polulation as a whole, and to the indigent and infirm in particular. Under the direction of the Emperor and through the active assistance of the Church, the hospital was set up as primarily as a therapeutic center designed to heal, rather than just provide palliative comfort for the dying. By appearances, this model of cooperation between secular medicine, the Church, and the government was the apex.” -Peter Bistolarides “Raising Lazarus”
