US hospital (over-)construction

On the topic of US healthcare, I recently came across this video about the recent boom in hospital construction.

I have spent some time on projects in America recently. It seemed as if every city, no matter how depressed economically, has just completed a brand new, state of the art concrete and glass temple to healthcare. In one newly renovated hospital, standing by the fountain in the luxurious but almost empty lobby, the only thing that seemed to be missing were the patients.
