Regents OK transfer of UCI pediatric patients to Orange County, CA, hospital

Los Angeles Times, November 21, 2008

Over the objection of nurses, the University of California Regents have unanimously approved a plan to transfer most of UC Irvine Medical Center's pediatric unit to nearby Children's Hospital of Orange County. Although nurses said pediatric services could suffer and tax already overstretched resources, both UC Irvine and Children's Hospital officials touted the "strategic affiliation" as a partnership that would deliver better services to patients.
