LMHS CEO, Jim Nathan links health care costs to unhealthy lifestyles

The April 14th edition of News-Press had an interesting article entitled, "Lee Memorial leader leery of plans".

Below are a couple of excerpts of interest:

Jim Nathan, president and chief executive
officer of Lee Memorial Health System, is
especially interested in what happens to
Medicare and Medicaid in the
Congressional budget battle.....

"It will also mean that we as a society focus
on dramatically improving our lifestyles to
being more health conscious with exercise
and nutrition as our sedentary and rapidly
fattening society is creating a massive
escalation in health costs. Our poor health
styles are helping to rapidly bankrupt our
nation in many ways including health care."
