Grady Memorial Hospital dialysis patients get another treatment reprieve

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, January 5, 2010

Though Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital has contracted with a clinic to provide free dialysis care for patients until September, the hospital continues to push patients to find their own care and has set another deadline to stop treatments. Grady had initially told patients it was closing its outpatient dialysis clinic in October. The hospital then told patients they would have three more months to find care elsewhere. During that time, Grady has paid for their treatments at an outside provider. That three-month deadline arrived Jan. 4, but the hospital again shifted the deadline—this time to Feb. 3.
