Atlanta-based Grady offers six month reprieve to patients of dialysis clinic
Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital is offering to relocate about 60 outpatient dialysis patients to other states or send them back to their home countries as the hospital prepares to close its dialysis unit. Hospital officials say they are willing to spend thousands of dollars to help relocate each patient and their family, including plane tickets, moving expenses, and rent security fees. But some patients say they cannot move to another state or back to their home country. And many are poor, uninsured, and undocumented immigrants.
