Hints of a possible solution for Grady dialysis patients

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, January 22, 2010

Some private providers of dialysis care are quietly hinting that they might be willing to share the burden of handling the 50 dialysis patients who will be without care once Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital closes its dialysis unit. Those providers include Emory Healthcare, which is opening three new dialysis clinics in Atlanta, as well as DaVita, which has about two dozen centers in the city. But no company has stepped forward and said it will care for the patients, most of whom are low-income illegal immigrants, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
