Advocate Aurora's plan to double in size is based on firm belief: Bigger is better

The merger that created Advocate Aurora Health could be just the start for the health system.
Jim Skogsbergh, the CEO of Advocate Aurora, last month set out the ambitious target of increasing the health system’s revenue to $27 billion a year and more than doubling its size by 2025.
He acknowledged that the target is somewhat audacious and characterized it as aspirational.

This is idiotic.  I had two surgeries last year done by Aurora in their Kenosha hospital.  I left the hospital against medical advice after my last surgery.  They are so short handed that my surgeon supported my decision to leave early.  Their patient care is horrible.  They don't have enough bodies to make good on their promises.  I would NEVER recommend Aurora to anyone.  They keep building.  Who's going to staff those new buildings?  A maintenance worker was my best help after my first surgery.  Maybe they'll hire more of those . . .
