Lawsuit against hospital dismissed

October 15, 2004

Albany-- An Albany Law firm drops a class action lawsuit against a South Georgia hospital accused of overcharging uninsured patients.

Attorney Robert Beauchamp and Plaintiff Katrina Ann Clark voluntarily dismissed the suit filed in August against Tift Regional Medical Center.

The suit accused TRMC of overcharging uninsured patients and practicing aggressive collection methods. Beauchamp could not be reached for comment but a spokesman for the hosptial says the case was dismissed because it simply had no merit.
