Counties’ vote on Atlanta hospital’s power shift nears
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 19, 2008
For decades, elected commissioners in the Georgia counties of Fulton and DeKalb have appointed all 10 members of the board of trustees at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. The county commissioners' power, however, would be diminished should Grady shift control over policies and budget from the Grady board to a proposed nonprofit. Ironically, Fulton and DeKalb must give final consent for the change to occur.
