An article in Monday’s edition misquoted Claude Watts, the Regional Medical Center at Memphis’ interim chief executive officer. Watts actually said the hospital would receive “Essential Access” funds from the state of Tennessee that were “about $4 million” less than what it received last year. Also, The MED has received a commitment from Arkansas for $500,000 in fiscal year 2010 for a new trauma system fund that state is setting up. The Daily News regrets the errors.
