Grady Memorial bills other counties for millions

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, January 28, 2009

Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital officials have sent bills totaling $75 million to Georgia counties for services that were provided to their residents but went unpaid. Some counties have taken the request seriously, but others suspect the move is a publicity stunt or part of a strategy to entice more dollars for Grady from the state government. The hospital sent the bills to about 100 counties. According to Grady, Cobb County owes $10 million, Gwinnett County owes $12.6 million, and Clayton County owes $13 million.
