State Aims To Revoke License for Southwest Healthcare
This week, the California Department of Public Health said it will seek to revoke Southwest Healthcare System's license to run two hospitals in Riverside County because of the hospitals' history of patient safety issues. A Southwest spokesperson said the company plans to appeal DPH's decision. Last week, CMS announced plans to terminate Southwest Healthcare System's Medicare reimbursements over similar concerns.
