Hospital to close pediatric unit
The Press-Enterprise

Corona Regional Medical Center will close its pediatric unit on Sept. 6, meaning children who would have been admitted to the hospital will need be treated elsewhere. Dr. Victor Ortuno, chairman of the hospital’s pediatric unit, questioned the decision. “It will have a huge impact on the community,” he said. “Corona is a prime area in a market with young kids. Patients will have to be shipped out of the area and transported elsewhere.”
