Calif. hospital, Sutter ordered into arbitration
Modern Healthcare

A judge has ordered Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Calif., to arbitrate financial differences with Sutter Health, a hospital chain based in Sacramento, Calif. Marin Healthcare District decided to split with not-for-profit Sutter Health in 2006. The district re-assumed control of Marin General in June.

But the two sides have been at odds over hospital funding. In August, the hospital filed a lawsuit against Sutter Health alleging that the system had improperly funneled $120 million out of the hospital over the prior four years.
