The gates swung open and he was ushered to a Rolls Royce by angels singing his welcome to eternity. St. Peter then queried the second doctor. He responded that he was a pediatrician and his work and innovations had give child a chance to leave a full life, often against tremendous odds.

HMO is Health Maintenance Organization. It is a type of health insurance provider that is run by bean counters instead of doctors, so they mete out your care based on statistic instead of individual needs. They are famous for the "you can stay in the hosptial 3 days for that, then out you go, no matter what...lest wise they are going to pay for anymore than that.
