This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

Over the last decade, health care delivery in the United States has changed dramatically. At the same time, organizational theory has been further developed to define complex organizations better. Stephen Mick and associates have admirably reviewed recent advances in organizational theory as they relate to health care and have proposed hypotheses that need to be addressed by research.

An especially appealing aspect of the book is how various health care organizations, such as health maintenance organizations (HMOs), physician organizations, and community clinical oncology programs, are critically evaluated in the context of a very theoretic examination of organizational theory and behavior.
