Senator: Attorney General Should Review Hospital Sale
Senate Health Committee Chair Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) has sent a letter to state Attorney General Kamala Harris (D) urging her to thoroughly review the proposed purchase of Victor Valley Community Hospital by Prime Healthcare Services. Prime Healthcare has been under scrutiny after recent reports of alleged Medicare overbilling. The attorney general's office has the power to approve, deny or place conditions on the sale of not-for-profit facilities.
