Nursing Program Gains from HCA Settlement

Belmont University’s School of Nursing will share $1 million in scholarship aid from HCA Inc. as part of the hospital company’s settlement of a long-running medical billing lawsuit, accroding to today’s Tennessean. Belmont will recieve one third of that sum, with two other Nashville schools’ nursing programs also sharing in the settlement. The Tennessean reports the payments would stem from HCA’s settlement of a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Nashville by several hundred health and welfare funds throughout the country that primarily provide health and retirement coverage to union members. The settlement must be approved by the court.
