Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital to cut 100 jobs
Grady Memorial Hospital will cut 100 jobs and may consider trimming programs to help bridge a $25 million shortfall in federal funding, hospital officials said. The layoffs, which will not include doctors or nurses, are expected to save Grady roughly $6 million, though it's unclear where the rest of the gap will be made up -- whether in program reductions or new sources of revenue, spokesman Matt Gove said. Grady is seeing one of its largest-ever reductions in government funding at a time when the recession has spurred greater numbers of uninsured patients, CEO Michael Young told board members at a meeting Monday. "We see patients in tears" who have lost their health coverage, he said.
