California Healthline

John Schunhoff, interim director of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, told county supervisors the county’s hospital system will have a $204 million budget deficit by the end of the current fiscal year and a $600 million gap in 2010-2011. While the county had hoped to close the deficit with hospital provider fees and federal funding, those revenue streams are not finalized, Schunhoff said.
