Nashville General mulls halting inpatient services

The Tennessean, September 19, 2012

That is one of four options presented to the hospital board Tuesday by a consulting firm hired to devise a new business model for the publicly owned, safety-net hospital. Meharry Medical College leaders said closing inpatient beds would harm its mission. But hospital officials say Nashville General has a building too big for its needs and too many uninsured patients.
