The Medical Center of Central Georgia in Macon is closing its last neighborhood health center for the poor.
The hospital is also paying a consultant more than $600,000 to perform an evaluation of hospital operations.
So, a list of things The Medical Center can't afford: Neighborhood health centers.
And a list of things they can: $600,000 consultants.
It's more complicated than that, so read both stories for the details. What the stories don't say, though, is how much Heather Duncan, who wrote them, had to fight to get the hospital to reveal the consultant's salary.
I wonder why they'd want to keep that secret?
