Judge calls on Los Angeles council to reconsider OK of hospital expansion
A judge has issued a tentative ruling calling for the Los Angeles City Council to reconsider its decision allowing a San Fernando Valley hospital to expand. Superior Court Judge Thomas McKnew said the 15-member council used the wrong voting process when it approved a $180-million expansion at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. The decision hands a victory to the union activists and neighborhood groups that had criticized the project for not addressing the effect of the project on traffic and parking.
