Hospital Seeks an Upgrade for Patients
The Laguna Beach Independent

Mission Hospital will seek permission of state Public Health Department regulators to allow admitted patients to recover in under-used private rooms of the intensive care unit in the Laguna Beach campus.

City officials who last week learned of the initiative initially feared that hospital administrators intended to close the unit altogether, which would also trigger the closure of the emergency room, a service city officials have staunchly demanded remain intact.
