In God’s Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine Dr. Sweet  lays out her evidence—in stories of her patients and her hospital—for some new ideas about medicine and healthcare in this country.  In trying to get control of healthcare costs by emphasizing “efficiency,”  we’ve headed down a wrong path. Medicine works best—that is, arrives at the right diagnosis and the right treatment for the least cost—when the doctor has enough time to do a good job, and pays attention not only to the patient but to what’s around the patient.
