Pontiac, MI, hospital is reopened

Detroit Free Press, November 4, 2008

North Oakland Medical Centers, a 336-bed Pontiac, MI-based hospital that closed, has reopened for business with last-minute promises of a $5.7-million bailout from Michigan's Medicaid budget.The bailout angered a nearby Pontiac hospital chief: "Unbelievable," said Jack Weiner, president and CEO of St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, also in Pontiac. Hospital administrators "all are sitting here saying that the amount of money Medicaid gives to hospitals is less than our costs. I find it amazing they'd give that money away to a brand-new entity, especially a for-profit physicians group."
