Activists protest Atlanta hospital board
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 12, 2008
Advocates for Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta are protesting the planned appointment of several prominent Atlanta businessmen to the new nonprofit hospital board. The activist group said some proposed board members have conflicts of interest and are not concerned about the hospital's poor patients. The existing board will soon announce members of the new nonprofit board, which will have power over decisions regarding budget, policy and the hospital's top managers.
