Representative seeks probe of University of Chicago's Urban Health Initiative

Chicago Tribune, June 4, 2009

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush is calling for a congressional investigation into the University of Chicago Medical Center's Urban Health Initiative, questioning whether it has engaged in "patient-dumping" practices by steering the poor to other health facilities in the city. The initiative has been controversial and has generated protests from the community and patients, as well as physicians and students inside and outside of the medical center.
