Southwest Atlanta Hospital shuts down

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, January 19, 2009

Southwest Atlanta Hospital, citing the credit crunch, has announced that it would close, the third time it has shut down in the past four years. Southwest Atlanta Hospital had already shuttered its emergency room and had been operating only an urgent-care center since the fall. The hospital's current owner, Georgia Medical Provider Financial Corp., said in a statement that it was unable to obtain funding to revive the facility. Southwest was seeking to become a hospital specializing in surgical services.
