The quasi-public hospital in Wilmington is picking up the brunt of the cost to care for the health of laid-off air park workers — soon to be, possibly, all 8-10,000 of them.
The other part of the funding came from DHL itself via the Clinton County Foundation, itself a 501c3 staffed by prominent public figures.
I wrote the story about this tonight.
I spent several hours scouring a grant application and crunching the numbers within. I found something mildly fishy with the application — that the local hospital minimized the cost it was actually going to incur with the plan it proposed. Not my place to decide whether or not it was intentional. But I certainly reported it.
