$12.7 million dashes Atlanta hospital’s hopes

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2008
Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta will get about half the money it wanted to help pay for its underfunded trauma center, a Georgia panel has decided. The Georgia Trauma Care Network Commission voted to give Grady $12.7 million to help defray the costs of care for patients with traumatic injuries who cannot pay for their treatment. The amount is twice the allocation for any other trauma center in the state. The commission's vote capped a meeting in which the panel, composed of physicians, hospital administrators and EMS specialists, laid out a funding plan for 15 trauma centers across the state. All the centers, the commission decided, need more cash.
