Detroit Medical Center to cut pay to WSU doctors

Detroit Free Press, February 8, 2008
The Detroit Medical Center plans to reduce payments to the Wayne State University School of Medicine by $12 million a year in a dispute over whether the medical center pays doctors too much to treat poor patients. Under a contract, DMC agreed to give WSU $19,167,435 a year for 3 1/2 years for care of indigent patients. The money is primarily used to help pay salaries of WSU doctors who treat indigent DMC patients.
