A suit filed Thursday in Texas federal court challenges provisions in the new health care reform law that place new restrictions on physician-owned hospitals. The suit may be the only one by a physician-owned hospital or other group challenging those provisions, says Lindsey Birdsong, attorney for plaintiffs Physician Hospitals of America and Texas Spine and Joint Hospital. The suit names as a defendant Kathleen Sebelius, in her official capacity as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
