One is: Who's going to help pay the multimillion-dollar price tag? [shot of medical center]

That company operates Lewis-Gale Medical Center, next door to the clinic ... and could help finance the buyback.

Family practitioner Stephen Fry resigned today from the clinic's Valley View office.

PhyCor problems have been blamed by 29 doctors who resigned this year.
