US health care system nothing to be proud of

My husband and I, former Bluffton residents, are dealing with a major illness, so we place great importance on the availability of good health care. The fact that the North England Journal of Medicine ranked America's health care system 37th in the world concerns us. Those that insist that we have the best health care in the world simply are not supporting their opinion with facts or have lived charmed lives and have never seen the real results of how we treat our sick and poor.
