Tenet to close Irvine hospital

October 08, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Tenet Healthcare Corp. said a subsidiary planned to close its hospital in Irvine on Jan. 15.

Tenet previously announced a plan to allow its lease for Irvine Regional Hospital and Medical Center to lapse in February, the Dallas-based company said. The building owner, HCP, a real estate investment trust based in Long Beach, asked Tenet to return the Irvine property as a closed hospital when the lease expired.

Tenet and its subsidiaries own or operate 55 general acute care and specialty hospitals in a dozen states, including 15 in California, according to the company's website. Tenet said the announcement provided state and local authorities with 90 days' notice of the closing of the Irvine hospital, which includes an emergency room.
