Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 20, 2008
Rep. Mike Jacobs (R-Atlanta) has toughened politicians' threat to force the transfer of management of Grady Memorial Hospital to a nonprofit group if local officials fail to act. The legislator introduced a bill to force the hospital to make the change. Georgia-based Republican leaders and Atlanta businesspeople have promised millions of extra dollars for the financially strapped Grady in exchange for the shift of power from a politically appointed board to a nonprofit corporation.
