    Communications director Kelsey Cooper called Shouldice Hernia Hospital “a private, world renowned hospital separate from any system and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services.”


    Nothing to see here.

    From the original article tpm stole it from, but didn’t report this-
    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is going to Canada for surgery
    Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, said the hospital is privately owned and people come from around the globe for their services.


    “This is more fake news on a story that has been terribly reported from day one — this is a private, world renowned hospital separate from any system and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services,” Cooper said in an email to the Courier Journal.



    And this is the clinic that actually invented the non-mesh hernia repair.

    But if America has the best healthcare in the world, why is he going to Canada? Have we no top-of-the-line facilities that can handle a hernia? There must be more to this than is publicly known.

    This is a private clinic that pioneered non-mesh hernia repair.
