Sucess comes but is Hard to Gauge.Opposition Hampered by Several Factors:Firings,Money.
I will not quote from the Atlanta Journal Constitution article. I dis not go to the Public Library Today because of other duties. Still, It is true and unlikely to be opposed externally right now.
Here is the verbatim from a Leaflet iisued by the Grady Coalition for Affordable Health Care:
WHAT IS EMORY UNIVERSITY HIDING ABOUT ITS RELATIONSHIP TO GRADY HOSPITAL?
QUESTIONS THE EMORY COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ASKING.
1. If Emory has nothing to hide, why won't they release documents pertaining to their accreditation as requested by the Attorney General, the State Legislature, the Grady Coalition and other concerned citizens?
2. How much of the funding that Emory claims to contribute to Grady in "uncompensated care" is paid for through private and public research grants?
3. If Emory is in fact contributing millions each year to Grady, why does the Grady budget contain a line item of $50 million dollars for payment to Emory?
4. If Emory has not wavered in its support of health care for the poor and uninsured, why have physicians been removed from Grady and the Veterans Administration to other Emory controlled facilities?
5. If Emory is invested in Grady's future, why won't they willingly support all provisions of the Grady/Emory contract?
6. If Emory values academic freedom, why was Dr. Samuel R. Newcom fired for speaking out? Why have other faculty and staff members received subtle pressure to support Emory's position without question?
The Grady Coalition: The Grady Coalition consists of organizations and individuaals committed to ensuring that Grady Hospital (IN downtown Atlanta near Auburn Avenue and Georgia State University) remains true to its mission of providing quality health care to the poor and uninsured.
