New beds signal Atlanta hospital’s revival
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, July 31, 2008
New beds at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta have the brains of a computer and can communicate about 30 programmed questions and commands that help in the care of patients who don't speak English. The 604 new beds will replace all the beds at Grady, and are Grady's first major purchase with the $50 million donated by the Robert Woodruff Foundation. Grady is paying $8.3 million for the new beds, which also can weigh a patient and set off an alarm if a person is near to falling off.
