Flood-damaged hospital won't get another $20M
An Indiana hospital that was given $70 million in federal funds to offset flood damage cannot get another $20 million, the 7th Circuit ruled. Columbus Regional Hospital was one of many entities affected by a series of floods that ravaged Midwest states in June 2008. The flood inundated the hospital's basement, destroying medical and lab equipment. After President Barack Obama authorized the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide disaster relief, the hospital received approximately $70 million. Believing FEMA had mishandled the award distribution, Columbus Regional sued the agency to recover an additional $20 million in aid.
