Hospitals rapidly expand influence
Daily Trojan

In the two years since USC took over control of the USC University Hospital and the USC Norris Cancer Hospital, both have seen drastic growth and increased recognition, largely because of both centers’ improved reputation within the medical field.

USC purchased both hospitals from Tenet Healthcare Corp. for $275 million in a deal closed March 31, 2009. This acquisition allowed faculty physicians at USC to care for private patients at both hospitals, giving physicians greater control over the direction of clinical and research programs focusing on a wide array of diseases and health issues.
