… how many more hospital beds would there be in America today if hospitals were free to open without first having to meet certificate-of-need (CON) requirements? Asked differently, how much potential hospital-bed capacity in the United States was destroyed by CON restrictions?

And how much blame for concerns about hospital-bed shortages will be aimed by politicians and the media at Certificate-of-Need restrictions?
