Tensions Remain High Over Hospital’s Reorganization
On Tuesday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mary Strobel directed City of Hope Medical Center and its affiliated physicians' group -- City of Hope Medical Group -- to begin settlement talks next week. On October 13, a court will hold a hearing on the medical group's petition for an injunction against the hospital. The hospital and the physicians' group have sparred frequently during the last year after the medical center announced plans to create a not-for-profit foundation to oversee its business matters.
