    take a look at this chart set.

    http://www.oecd.org/...

    Nursing salaries in the US are high compared to other countries, reflecting salaries.

    we have a lot of CTs and MRi reflecting tech costs.

    drug prices aren't part of the data set, but the availability of expensive chemo drugs, e.g has to play a role

    Admin costs aren't on here but have to be higher in a  for profit setting
