Public and Private Hospitals - General Information

Public hospitals generally offer lower-cost treatment options for people without insurance. These hospitals have certain immunities that a private hospital does not, so injured parties may be limited in their options to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Private hospitals are for-profit institutions funded through private payments or insurance. They do not enjoy many of the same legal protections as public hospitals.

It is important to know that medical malpractice can happen at any one of these hospitals - public or private. It is also important that your lawyer understands the differences in liability and hospital responsibility.
