Grady to other Atlanta hospitals: Do ’fair share’

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 8, 2008

Michael Young, the new CEO of Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, fired a shot at other hospitals in the city by saying they should stop sending their uninsured patients to Grady. The practice of sending these nonpaying patients to Grady has gone on for years, Young said, and is a major problem contributing to Grady's multimillion-dollar deficit. If it continues, the hospital may not survive, Young said.
