Old board for Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital flexes muscles

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, November 12, 2009

The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority was essentially pushed aside when officials at Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital signed the agreement that created a new corporate board early last year. In recent weeks, however, the authority has become Grady's chief communicator on money issues with the Fulton County Commission, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Fulton commission provides about $80 million a year toward Grady's approximately $650 million budget. And as tension has mounted between the Fulton County Commission and Grady's corporate board, commissioners have used the opportunity to largely bypass the corporation in favor of the more familiar authority, according to this article from the Journal-Constitution.
