Providence Health agrees to take over motion picture hospital
Hollywood's embattled nursing home may get a second act. The Motion Picture and Television Fund said that it had reached an agreement with hospital chain Providence Health & Services that would allow the fund to keep open the hospital and nursing home in Woodland Hills. Under the proposed agreement Providence would sign a long-term lease agreement with the fund to manage the hospital and nursing home and assume financial responsibility for its operations. State licenses for the hospital would be transferred to nearby Providence Tarzana Medical Center. Renton, WA-based Providence is a nonprofit health services provider that operates hospitals, including St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, and healthcare clinics and nursing homes, mainly on the West Coast.
