One of the biggest challenges today, he states is the changing structure of health care and a declining work. The declining workforce is seeing stress on the worker as the skilled and educated employee doesn’t want to work more than eight hours or on the week-ends in a 7- days- a- week, 24- hours- a- day hospital setting. Another major issue is that hospitals are becoming more specialized where top dollar reimbursement can be achieved which leaves a gap in the traditional services.

For example, some differences are water and sanitation, diseases (such as HIV), medicine and medical treatment.
