Documentary Sheds Light on American Healthcare

Cleveland Clinic physician experts provide commentary in new documentary on healthcare

“Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare” takes us on a journey with a patient and a physician to get an inside view of the problems facing America’s healthcare system. Woven through these stories is expert commentary from leaders in different fields. They explain the history and shed light on the challenges we face in changing the status quo. Featured among the healthcare experts are three Cleveland Clinic leaders: CEO and President, Toby Cosgrove, MD; Cardiovascular Medicine Chairman Steve Nissen, MD; and Head of the Women’s Cardiovascular Center, Leslie Cho, MD.
