Riverdale, GA, hospital eyes cutbacks as county balks at bond

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, October 17, 2008

Southern Regional Medical Center, Clayton County, GA's only hospital, has lost money for two years and is depending on the county government to help offset a decline in patients and rising costs to treat the uninsured. An ongoing political feud and concerns about the struggling economy have delayed that help, however. The 331-bed hospital Riverdale hospital has asked the County Commission to back a $95 million bond. County commissioners initially agreed to back the bond, but have began having second thoughts.
