The event that contributed most significantly to the decline of the charitable or social mission of voluntary hospitals was:
specialization of clinical practice
passage of Medicaid and Medicare
development of high-technology hospital care
passage of HMO legislation in 1973

- resulted in the closure of all medical schools that did not meet established quality criteria
- stimulated licensing legislation and established new requirements pertaining to training lengths and quality standards in laboratories and other training facilities
- resulted in contributions of large sums of charitable dollars from foundations and wealthy individual
