U.K. forcing HCA to sell at least one London hospital

The U.K.'s Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) has ordered HCA International (HCA) to sell one or more of its hospitals in London, saying that the the company has too much power in the market for self-pay and insured patients.

HCA owns over half the available overnight bed capacity, and its strength allows it to charge higher prices to insurers.

In a further blow to HCA, the CMA isn't forcing HCA rival BMI to sell any of its centers despite earlier considering such a move.
