Consumer Advocacy Group Calls for Three Calif. Hospitals To End Affiliation with Medical Testing Firm
Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy group, has sent a letter to hospitals across eight states -- including the California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles, St. Bernadine Medical Center in San Bernardino and Chula Vista Medical Center -- urging them to end their affiliation with Florida-based HealthFair Health Screening, a medical testing company. The group said that HealthFair heavily promotes and offers "medically non-beneficial testing."
