Meetings Held To Discuss Changes At Nashville General Hospital
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A new partnership could be in the works to keep Nashville General Hospital afloat, and local residents have been asked to voice their opinion on the possible changes.
Meharry Medical College President Doctor Wayne Riley said he was in talks with Saint Thomas Health Services about forging a partnership. This is one of many ideas to help the city-run hospital.
If an arrangement isn't made, Nashville General may be turned into an outpatient treatment facility with few, if any, in-patient services.
"We remain committed to providing Nashville's safety-net population with access to the health-care services they need," said Waverly D. Crenshaw Jr., the chairman of the hospital board. "We look forward to receiving input from the community as the process moves forward."
Local residents have also been asked to give their opinions on what should happen in the hospital. Several community meetings have been schedule to allowing residents to voice their ideas and their opinions about proposed changes for Nashville General Hospital.
The meetings will be 6 p.m. on Oct. 9 at the Madison Branch Library, 610 Gallatin Pike S.; 6 p.m. on Oct. 25 at Hadley Park Community Center, 1037 28th Ave. N.; and 6 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the community meeting room of the Metro Nashville Police Department North Precinct, 2231 26th Ave. N.
