Reporter John Frank was at the meeting of the House Select Committee on State Assets, which was discussing whether UNC Health Care should own Rex Hospital, among other things. By John's account, it was not a very comfortable meeting for the UNC Health Care brass. Read his Dome post.

The two surgeons, Lance E. Landvater and Robert B. Peyton, are the latest Wake County doctors to change affiliations, moves that are being driven by both competition between and Rex and federal health care reform.
The two were part of an 8-surgeon team at Carolina Cardiovascular Surgical Associates. The practice is based at WakeMed but the group's surgeons have privileges to operate at both hospitals.
Landvater and Peyton will be co-medical directors of the new Rex practice, to be called Rex Cardiothoracic Surgery Specialists.
