The District of Columbia is planning on asking a Southeast D.C. hospital to return millions of dollars worth of federal funding, the Washington Business Journal reports.

According to Ben Fischer's report, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and the city's Health Care Finance department will seek to recoup $11 million in federal funding that United Medical Center in Southeast has reportedly already spent.

United Medical Center is set to receive more than $9 million less than expected in federal funds during this fiscal year.

Supporters of the hospital are now worried about the short and long-term future.
