Southwest Healthcare reaches agreement to keep Medicare funding

Los Angeles Times, May 18, 2010
Southwest Healthcare officials announced that the Riverside County, CA, hospital system has reached an agreement with federal regulators that will allow them to keep their Medicare funding past June 1. The agreement comes a month after state officials announced a $100,000 fine after multiple determinations that the hospital system's two facilities had put patients at risk of death or serious injury. The day after the fine was made public, federal officials said they planned to cut off Medicare funding June 1.
