Grady Memorial Hospital's decision to close three clinics sparks angst, outrage

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 14, 2009

Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital plans to close three of its nine neighborhood clinics sparked outrage from some officials and fears from patients that they will lose their healthcare. Grady CEO Michael Young said no patients will lose services, since each of the health clinics will consolidate with other Grady clinics about five miles away. Young added patients will actually receive better services, as the clinics on the chopping block offer limited services.
