Clayton County, GA, hospital fights to recover

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 23, 2009

The only hospital in Clayton County, GA, is trying to fill 80 vacancies and recruit back physicians and patients who have taken their business to other area hospitals. Southern Regional Health System's interim chief executive said progress has been made since last month, when officials had to beg the county for financial help. "We're trying to build services as much as possible," said Ron Dodson, chairman of the hospital's board of directors. "A lot of physicians are going to Henry. Some use Piedmont Fayette. We want to see what they can do to make their work at Southern Regional better."
