A giant hospital chain agreed Tuesday to conditions set by the state for its purchase of Daniel Freeman hospitals in Inglewood and Marina del Rey. The decision ends a drawn-out debate over the fate of Daniel Freeman Hospitals Inc., a nonprofit corporation so burdened with debt that it could not even repay $5 million borrowed from retirement funds of the nuns who own it. But, for some, the sale also increases concern about the future of nonprofit hospitals in California.

The sale of Daniel Freeman Hospitals, the last nonprofit hospitals in Inglewood and Marina del Rey, to Tenet Healthcare Corp. won conditional approval from California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer on Friday. But the $55-million deal was far from certain, as Santa Barbara-based Tenet expressed "disappointment" with Lockyer. "We have some very serious reservations about the conditions that the attorney general has attached to this transaction," said Tenet spokesman Harry Anderson.

Daniel Freeman Hospital in Inglewood has turned its cafeteria into a training ground for food service employees and three trainees were sent into the work world Friday. The new graduates were part of the hospital's newly created food service internship program and spent 10 weeks learning about the restaurant industry. The chefs in training learned about nutrition, catering and food preparation through hands-on experience in the cafeteria. Now the hospital is helping them find jobs.

Los Angeles County health officials investigating charges that Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital in Inglewood has refused for economic reasons to accept ambulances carrying indigent patients found three cases where patients were inappropriately diverted to other hospitals. But they concluded that these were "isolated cases" and do not indicate a willful pattern of abuse by hospital personnel.

Nearly half the hospitals in Los Angeles County still do not examine rape victims according to state procedures designed to help collect evidence for use in court. This means that some rape victims are still being shunted from one hospital to another seeking treatment. Each hospital may have its reasons. But none of the reasons can heal the harm that is done.

Veteran Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn was taken to Daniel Freeman Hospital in Inglewood Sunday night after complaining of dizziness, and a hospital spokeswoman said he would be kept in the coronary care unit overnight for observation. The spokeswoman, Christie Ciraulo, said the supervisor was "awake, alert and moving all of his limbs properly . . . He will probably undergo diagnostic tests tomorrow. His condition is good. All his vital signs are stable."

For years, therapists at Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital in Inglewood wondered what to do about Lloyd Galloway Jr., 43, who has cerebral palsy and cannot speak. To help him communicate, his family had bought him a $3,600 laptop computer that produces a synthetic voice when letters are typed on its keyboard. But when a table was mounted on his wheelchair to hold the computer, Galloway, who has limited use of his arms and hands, was unable to reach most of the keys.
