US settles race complaint against Flint (MI) hospital

The Miami Herald / Associated Press, September 30, 2013
The federal government says it's settled a discrimination complaint against a Flint hospital following accusations that black nurses were barred from treating a white newborn. The Flint Journal reports Friday the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission will conduct annual training for the management staff of Hurley Medical Center. The EEOC also will work with the hospital on other educational and developmental efforts aimed at Flint-area youth. Hurley Chief Executive Melany Gavulic says in a statement that she's pleased to work with the commission and receive its resources.
