Has anybody heard about this? I was thinking of applying, but now not so much. Tried to look it up on Google, but couldn't find anything.

Grady has been losing money for years. But what does that have to do with accreditation?

As far as I can tell, how you handle money is an important part of hospital accreditation. At least, JCAHO thinks so, and presumably that's why they mentioned it in their preliminary report (it looks like Grady blocked the final report from being released to the public.) Also, Grady is more of an Emory hospital than a Morehouse hospital, so I'm amused that the stigma would fall on Morehouse.

I totally agree! Also Morehouse has great student-patient training facilities, great faculty,and 100% first time board pass rate and many more things so I don't believe they will be losing their accreditation anytime soon.

Grady Hospital is a public hospital so it is not owned by Emory or Morehouse. But it appears that Grady has had problems paying Emory and Morehouse, who provide medical staff.
