Grady hospital news

Budget in red, forecast cloudy

Grady Memorial Hospital is one of the few remaining public hospitals in the United States, providing medical care for the poor and uninsured. The largest hospital in Georgia, Grady boasts its trauma care, the best in the state. The hospital, however, is funded almost entirely Fulton and DeKalb county taxpayers and has been going broke. In 2008, in the history of the 116-year-old medical facility, a newly created nonprofit took control of the hospital and is expected to revitalize both the community's faith and financial support for Grady, including campaigns that have pledged some $300 million over five years.
