That should be the new meme! Grady Hospital equals Macon, GA. Both get out negotiated.
Stephenson’s contract, with an annual salary of $600,000, stipulates that should the new hospital board replace her within the first year, she would be paid the remaining amount in the two-year contract. Should she leave in September, that could mean a parting check of about $750,000 or more.
News of the two-year contract has created concerns —- and objections —- among some Grady officials. The agreement was executed by the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority, of which Stephenson is chairwoman, and was signed by Geoffrey Heard, vice chairman. Stephenson also serves as vice chairwoman of the new hospital corporation, the entity that assumed control over the hospital in late May.
