Erlanger at Hutcheson continues to bleed money
Despite a new board, new management and the infusion of a $20 million line of credit, a struggling North Georgia public hospital continues to lose money. Erlanger at Hutcheson, formerly known as Hutcheson Medical Center, lost more than $9 million in the first five months of the 2012 fiscal year, which began in July. It lost the most— $2.7 million—in September. Hutcheson board Chairman Corky Jewell could not be reached for comment last week.
