Grady Memorial Hospital, Fulton County near deal on needed information

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 19, 2009

Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital and Fulton County, GA, are nearing consensus on what information the hospital must provide to get public support. Since Fulton adopted in January a 2009 budget of $76.5 million for Grady, county finance officials have so far only made the county's $17 million debt payment for Grady. The remaining operating money has been on hold as the two sides have struggled to reach agreement on accountability on indigent patient counts, services provided, costs, and revenues.
