Creating Community Responsive Philanthropy in Nonprofit Conversions

Across the country, nonprofit health organizations such as hospitals, HMOs, and insurance companies are reorganizing by means of mergers, acquisitions, nonprofit consolidations, and alterations of corporate structure from nonprofit to for-profit enterprises. These transactions are called “conversions.” As conversions go forward, consumer and community advocates are working hard to see that the public interest in nonprofit organizations is well protected.
