The healthcare industry has been transformed in recent years from what was traditionally an entirely domestic industry into one that has now become a global industry increasingly defined by market-oriented principles. Against the forces that have driven the globalization of the industry others are arrayed that have resisted globalization and anchored the industry in national systems of healthcare delivery and consumption. This interplay between the global and the local is emerging as a predominant feature of the industry that is shaping its contemporary dynamics and will likely have significant consequences in the years to come. In this paper, I seek to explicate this development and examine the opportunities and challenges that it holds for New York City healthcare providers and the policymakers who oversee the industry.
