ATLANTA (AP) - A Fulton County official says the CEO of Grady Memorial Hospital is expected to announce his resignation.

Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Grady CEO Michael Young is expected to make the announcement at a special Grady board meeting Thursday morning.

WSB-TV first reported the development on Wednesday.

Young was named president and CEO at Grady in September 2008.
