Doctor: Atlanta hospital could be 'flagship model'
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 25, 2008

The county's OK could bring hundreds of millions of dollars in capital funds, but consultants have said some cuts or changes in services could be needed to turn around the hospital's huge financial losses of the past decade. Now some of Grady's top doctors are weighing in on their prognosis for the healthcare system as it faces a potentially historic transition.
