Judge clears way for Atlanta-based Grady's dialysis unit to close

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 28, 2009
A Fulton County, GA, judge has cleared the way for Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital to close its outpatient dialysis clinic. Grady spokesman Matt Gove said the outpatient dialysis clinic would close in about a week, once plans are in place to find other care for its patients. The closing of the Grady clinic would essentially leave metro Atlanta without a major hospital that provides nearly free outpatient dialysis care for the poor, uninsured, and illegal immigrants.
