The Press-Enterprise

The leadership at beleaguered Southwest Healthcare System is assuring employees and the estimated 500,000 people who rely on the organization’s services that it is working with state and federal regulators to keep its two hospitals running.

On Thursday, officials warned Southwest that its hospitals are in jeopardy of losing their licenses and Medicare funding because the organization has not corrected ongoing systemic problems that have put patients at risk.
