Fulton County, GA, holds back on Grady funding
Fulton County, GA, slashed its public funding for Grady Memorial Hospital by $30 million over issues of spending accountability. The board, however, promised more money if Grady provides an annual audit and monthly reports of income, patient numbers, and standard of care. Fulton commissioners voted 4-3 to give the charity hospital $50 million this year, down from $80 million last year and $100 million in 2007. The county budget commission had only recommended paring the allocation this year by $3.5 million, to $76.5 million.
