Hutcheson cutbacks expected this week; critics want board to quit as supporters blame restructuring
Cutbacks loom at Hutcheson Medical Center.
At their meeting Wednesday night, board members of the deep-in-debt
Fort Oglethorpe hospital are expected to adopt what have been described
as "austerity measures" outlined in a strategic plan crafted in a series
of closed-door, executive-session meetings.

Atlanta-based attorney, Michele Person Madison, declined last week to
release the strategic plan in response to a Georgia Open Records Act
request filed by the Times Free Press. She wrote Hutcheson's strategic
proposals and plans aren't public until after the board approves them.
