Pacific Health Corp., the Tustin-based hospital chain that owns troubled Anaheim General Hospital, is seeking to expand its regional footprint -- but not without controversy. Last spring the hospital company agreed to purchase the nonprofit, 223-bed Anaheim Memorial Medical Center for $57.1 million. But the sale of a nonprofit hospital to a for-profit company must be approved by the state attorney general, and the purchase has run into opposition.

American Medical International Inc. filed a $73-million securities fraud and racketeering lawsuit Tuesday against a group of doctors and others who are attempting to buy Anaheim General Hospital. The suit, filed in Los Angeles federal court, alleges that the defendants "embarked on a joint scheme and conspiracy to force AMI to sell its stock . . . to defendants at below-market value."

Administrators at Anaheim General Hospital say the imaging machine they have placed in their parking lot will help save patients' lives, but neighbors complain that the round-the-clock drone of the machine's diesel generator is making their lives miserable. Some residents of Oakhaven Drive say their sleep has been disrupted since the hospital two weeks ago began stationing a trailer holding a magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, machine in the parking lot about 75 feet from their homes.

A reported leak of toxic gas at Anaheim General Hospital, which prompted the evacuation Tuesday of 37 patients and 100 workers, may have been a false alarm, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday. The sterilizing machine that supposedly emitted a hissing sound was examined late Tuesday by the firm that maintains the equipment and found to be "in perfect working order," said Sally Chaiten, in charge of public relations for Anaheim General.

Calling a 40-minute blackout Sunday afternoon at Anaheim General Hospital "an unusual occurrence," a state health official said Monday that she wants a full explanation of the incident. "We expect to see something in writing from the facility, explaining what happened," said Jacqueline A. Lincer, district administrator for the state Department of Health Services licensing and certification division in Santa Ana.

A blackout hit Anaheim General Hospital for 40 minutes Sunday when high-voltage wires in the area exploded and the hospital's own backup system failed. Nurses kept two patients' respirators operating by hand. Officials said no one was in surgery at the time. The power outage occurred at 3:20 p.m. when several electrical wires in the area exploded and fell to the ground. That explosion in the 2800 block of Westhaven Drive affected nearly 4,000 homes and businesses, Fire Capt. Jim Yost said.

In a bitter legal dispute likely to fuel national concerns over the financial entanglements between hospitals and doctors, two radiologists have accused Anaheim General Hospital of terminating their contract because they refused to pay the hospital a $181,000 marketing fee that the doctors charge was a kickback.
