Council approves emergency $10M for Metro General Hospital

by Joey Garrison, The Tennessean, Feb. 3, 2016 - The Metro Council approved a $10 million infusion of emergency funds Tuesday for Metro General Hospital at Meharry, Nashville's safety net hospital whose new leader requested the dollars to address deficiencies identified by regulators, a revenue shortfall and other needs.

But even though the vote was unanimous, some council members questioned the late timing of the request. Had it not been been approved, meeting payroll next week was at stake for the hospital, which has struggled financially over the years. (link)
