ATLANTA- Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement regarding the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce’s final report on Grady Hospital:


“Every other urban hospital authority in Georgia has become more financially stable by updating their corporate structure. Losing Grady, particularly the trauma services provided there, would be a blow to Georgia and would likely overburden other hospitals in Metro Atlanta. We will continue to evaluate the proper role for the state to play in the long-term health of Grady, including our continued efforts to find funding for a trauma care network in the state.”
