  The Merger , 03/23/2008
Reviewer: Judy Zalezne
In The Merger, Dr. Frankl proves he knows the political anatomy of hospital administrators as well as he knew the physical anatomy of his patients.  He understands that in politics, too, a disease can be insidiously destroying the inner workings even while the facade still looks fine.  Forceful CFO's, ego-driven experts, caring physicians --- what motivates these respected icons of society when their personal goals are challenged?   If one takes the Hippocratic Oath pertaining to the ethical practice of medicine, is he obligated to ethical practice in other categories?
