Raleigh News & Observer, March 21, 2008
Franklin Regional Medical Center in Louisburg, NC, is facing the threat of losing critical federal health insurance payments if it does not correct unspecified problems with care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid have given the medical center until March 30, 2008, to correct the problems. The facility is already under criticism from residents who oppose its plans to relocate near more affluent residents in Wake County, NC.
