ATLANTA (March 17, 2000) – David I. Adelman, a partner with Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP, has been appointed to Grady Health System's Board of Trustees. Grady Health System is governed by The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority, a public authority established by the county commission boards of Fulton and DeKalb counties, and Trustee members are appointed proportionately by the two-county commission boards. Adelman's appointment was confirmed by a unanimous vote of the DeKalb Board of Commissioners.
"I am humbled by this appointment. Grady is one of the great institutions in the City of Atlanta, the State of Georgia and the United States. Grady faces many challenges in the next few years. As a new Board member, I intend to be a good listener, keep an open mind, a compassionate heart and a sharp pencil," remarked Adelman. Grady Health System Board of Trustee members are charged with assisting the health system in achieving its goals of providing quality, cost-effective and customer-focused health care to residents of metropolitan Atlanta and the State of Georgia, including offering medical services to under-served, governmentally-sponsored populations. The hospital was established in 1892, and continues to remain a leader in providing comprehensive, advanced medical care in the metropolitan Atlanta area.
Adelman focuses his practice on litigation at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP. Throughout his legal career, he has represented various telecommunications and energy companies and has spent significant time representing indigent veterans on a pro bono basis in matters before the Veterans Administration and the United States Court of Veterans appeals.
Adelman's other community involvement includes service on the DeKalb County Homestead Option Sales Tax ("HOST") citizens oversight committee. He has also been a volunteer reader for the National Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic Program.
