THE BRONX - Residents said Thursday they were not surprised when a study claimed the county ranked last in terms of health in the state.

?One of the biggest problems to the delivery of health care is the rising cost,? said Dr. Gurkan Taviloglu, president of the Bronx County Medical Society. ?And the major reason for the rising cost is the malpractice crisis.?

The borough needs national health care reform, Tavologlu said.

The study was conducted by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
