Where have all the patients gone...

I work at my local County Hospital and for the last two weeks we've had a very low census. I hear rumors that the local Giant HMO and local For Profit Hospital Chain are packed right now. I also know one Local For Profit but Independent and Unaffiliated Hospital is at risk of closing right now because of extremely low census. So for folks who actually work in hospitals (and clinics?) are you seeing a change in number of patients since Obamacare started?

Are public hospitals likely to start closing due to changes in health care structure? I am interested in answers both from people with big picture analysis and from people who work in the field so can see the immediate impacts.
