CEOs in Prime Healthcare-Daughters of Charity deal worry AG conditions could scuttle sale
San Francisco Business Times

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has until Feb. 20 to approve, reject or add her own conditions to the Daughters of Charity Health System’s proposed sale of its six hospitals to for-profit Prime Healthcare, a sale opposed by the powerful Service Employees International Union.

Dr. Prem Reddy, Prime’s CEO, and Robert Issai, his counterpart at the Los Altos Hills-based Daughters of Charity system, told me this afternoon they fear that Harris will either nix the deal or — more likely in their opinion — add “onerous” conditions.
