Plan to break up hospitals alarms Prince George's County (MD) Council members
The Prince George's County (MD) Council has criticized a plan that would allow a panel responsible for the sale of the county's troubled hospital system to sell pieces of it to various buyers. After a briefing by members of the Prince George's County Hospital Authority about proposed state legislation, council member Samuel H. Dean (D-Mitchellville) argued that the plan violates an agreement the county made when it pledged to pay $174 million over five years to the winning bidder.
