Committee for Co-operative Medical
Service for Federal Employes has
stepped Into the turbulent situation
here over medical practice. The com
mittee some time ago came stoutly
to the defense of G. H. A. in a letter
sent to Dr. Thomas E. “Neill, president
of the Medical Society of the District
of Columbia. It did not indicate, how
ever, at that time it was planning a
clinic or association of its own.
Group Health Association, accord
ing to its charter, is set up on a broad
basis, which eventually would enable
it to take into membership Govern
ment people in all departments or
establishments in the District and
vicinity. It now has about 1,000 mem
bers. It is this possible scope of the
organization which aroused the Bu
reau of Legal Medicine and Legisla
tion of the American Medical Asso
ciation. In a special report the bureau
pointed out the competition such an
extensive clinic would raise against
"The probable results on the medi
cal profession of the successful opera
tion in the District of Columbia and
vicinity even of a single organization
such as Group Health Association
cannot be estimated.” declared the
bureau. Pointing out that G. H. A.
alone might conceivably draw into
membership a total of 347,736 persons,
out of a total population of 486.869,
withdrawing them "from the ordinary
practice of medicine." the bureau esti
mates that the withdrawal of "even
one-half that number of persons, all
of whom are able to pay for medical
services, will materially disturb med
ical practice in the District of Colum
bia and react against public interest."
The report was approved by the Dis
trict Medical Society, and sent to
enforcement officials here.

Department of Gallinger Hospital.
The Public Health Service, Dr. Draper
indicated, feels that this former survey
had accomplished some good.
The administrative studies now be
ing made by the Bureau of the Budget
into hospital conditions, it was said,
would be helpful.
Richard MacKenaie, New York hos
pital consultant with the Budget Bu
reau, is now making such a survey at
Freedmen's Hospital on the request
of Secretary of the Interior Ickes. He
also has made an informal study of
conditions at Gallinger Hospital.
Dr. Draper said the Public Health
Service no doubt would make use of
these budget studies, as it wouldn't
be necessary to duplicate work al
If the Commissioners wish, the’ sur
vey probably would make speciAc
recommendations as to the financial
needs of the health departments and
hospitals generally to improve condi
tions and facilities of medical service.
Such recommendations naturally
would have to be submitted to Con
gress, but with the support of Public
Health Service back of them, based
on a close and disinterested report of
conditions as they actually exist, it
was believed Congress would pay heed
to the situation.
Fortunately, the Public Health serv
ice has an ample staff of experts at
hand to conduct any kind of a survey
that Is required in Washington. Dur
ing the past year, it was said, the
city of Alexandria underwent a dose
medical survey at the hands of the
Virginia State Health Department.
