The Press-Enterprise

Federal regulators have warned officials at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton that the hospital is in jeopardy of losing its Medicare reimbursements because of problems including patients’ rights, infection control and surgical services discovered during at least two recent inspections.

Officials with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in an April 30 letter told hospital administrators that they “are initiating a process that could result in termination of the hospital’s Medicare provider agreement on or before July 30, 2010.”
