Patients stuck in middle of Thousand Oaks hospital dispute
Ventura County Star - Tom Kisken

Many pregnant women and other patients who want care at a Thousand Oaks hospital are being sent elsewhere because of a dispute involving a large medical group, doctors and hospital officials said. Administrators at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center said the Heritage Provider Network, which rescued the Lakeside Community Healthcare physicians’ group from the brink of bankruptcy in November, has diverted a few hundred of its member patients to hospitals in Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley.
