Some say the role of the for-profit hospitals will soon change: "Eventually people will realize their profits are coming at the expense of everyone, and they'll put a stop to it," one insider said.

Others say the for-profits in the state now are not a big deal: "We haven't had the big ones come to town yet. If the behemoth for-profits come in, these guys aren't going to make a difference."

And of course, there are some not-so-nice descriptions of the for-profits: "I use this term advisedly, but these guys are bottom-feeders," said one. (Amazing what the promise of anonymity will bring out.)

That being said, for-profit hospitals are growing. And they are providing services in areas where others do not want to be or could not make it work. Critics should not forget that; the people of those cities certainly don't.

Of course all this means a for-profit company has to make our top 10. We'll go with the most successful: Garipalli's CarePoint, which owns Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center.

"In terms of footprint, it's Vivek," said one insider. "They are big."
