The divergence between private and public health facilities construction continued in July. Overall, health facilities construction starts increased 0.3 percent in July, versus zero for other construction. However, there was a significant difference between the private and public segments.
Construction of private health facilities dropped 0.3 percent, versus an increase of 1.0 percent for other private construction. Construction of public health facilities increased a whopping 2.5 percent, versus a drop of 3.2 percent for other public construction (Table I).
Is this what they mean by “infrastructure” spending – broken bridges and roads, while more VA and county hospitals spring up?
