In 1980, six hospitals cared for Seattle's poor and indigent. Today just one of those hospitals is still open for business.


House of Hope & Fear is the inspiring story of life at Seattle's surviving public hospital, as told through the eyes of the doctors and nurses committed to caring for the poor, and from the perspective of the hospital executives who somehow - barely - keep the doors open.


This book arrives just in time to join our conversation on health care reform, delivering a medical drama unlike any other.


"Dr. Young writes thoughtfully and cogently about the profound challenges of the medical system and the doctors who rise to meet those challenges, and her love for her patients shines through on every page."-Emily Transue, author of On Call and Patient by Patient
