CMS lifts termination threat against Greenville Memorial
The CMS has lifted the threat of canceling Medicare and Medicaid contracts at Greenville (S.C.) Memorial Hospital after the hospital made needed improvements to emergency room processes and staffing.
Greenville Memorial could have lost about $500 million in annual patient revenue from the CMS if the contracts had been revoked.
The hospital was investigated by state regulators in March after a 48-year-old Greenville man who allegedly became combative in the ER died when he was restrained by security on a gurney. Their findings led to the CMS termination notice.
