My answer is D.

A. not mentioned in passage
B. nonprofit managers not mentioned in passage
C. This would be owners motive not profit mangers'.
D. From given premises this is the only correct answer.
E. Passage does not state that profit managers desire to achieve efficiency.

C and D are close. D could be true, but C must be true. Achieving maximum financial efficiency must be the highest priority in the manager's job. Else we would not have been discussing it.

Straight D. What is the OA?

(A) These managers have generally been motivated to streamline hospital services as a result of direct intervention by hospital owners. // Irrelevant
(B) These managers are more likely than managers of nonprofit hospitals to use unnecessary amounts of resources to provide services. // Irrelevant
(C) Managers' most important self-acknowledged goal is to achieve maximum financial efficiency so that hospitals show a profit. //Contradicts the stated premise
(D) Managers' decisions regarding services provided by their hospitals may not reflect hospital owners' priorities. // Must be true based on the argument.
(E) These managers do not place a high priority on maximizing profits, despite their desire to achieve efficiency // DO NOT place, is going to far. Argument states MAY NOT always

Exactly Suman...this is a GMATPrep RC question that I remember. Probably GMAC mixes them up...

I will go with D....Since the managers work independently , their decisions may not reflect the owners priorities....
