Two physicians affiliated with the Creighton University School of Medicine defend the acquisition of St. Joseph Hospital, the university's primary teaching hospital, by the investor-owned American Medical International (AMI), Inc. The authors describe the contractual arrangement, explain the considerations that led to the affiliation, and discuss related academic and ethical issues. They contend that the contract signed by AMI binds the corporation to uphold the Catholic ethical standards of the university and hospital in patient care and medical education. (KIE abstract)
