1. Suppose that you are the president and CEO of St. Michael's Hospital for Children. You arrive at work to find TV cameras and news reporters in your office. A national news story had aired the previous evening calling into question the tax-exempt status of nonprofit hospital related to the Illinois case referenced in the list of examples (Pressey 2010). You feel compelled to address the issues raised in the Illinois case in particular and the general principles of tax-exempt hospitals from the local perspective. What does your press release say?
2. Related to the earlier case regarding St. Michael's Hospital for children, do you as the CEO have additional arguments against taxing authorities attempting to revoke a hospital's tax-exempt stats in lieu of the Affordable Care Act? Does the board have a different position based on the ACA?
