UPMC and the business of nonprofit corporations

            Recently, UPMC  announced plans to close its Braddock Hospital. The hospital staff and the community oppose the idea,  and are fighting to keep the hospital open. UPMC is just one glaring example of the many nonprofits that are losing their focus and are hurting our communities.  It’s fashionable for nonprofits to think that they should operate like businesses.  That’s fine, to an extent, but it often goes too far.
