Larry Oakley, a barber who owned the oldest business in Westwood Village -- a shop his family opened in 1929 -- and who counted celebrities including Howard Hughes and Bing Crosby among his regular customers, has died. He was 80. Oakley, who lived in Mar Vista, died Wednesday at Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital in Marina del Rey of complications from a staph infection, said Clinton Schudy, who manages Oakley's Barber Shop and will take over the business. In the 1920s, Oakley's uncle was cutting hair on Vermont Avenue across from the original UCLA campus when Westwood Village developer Edwin Janss made him an offer.

Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital is an essential part of our local health-care infrastructure ("Closures Put Big Hospital Chains Under Microscope," Aug. 22). It must not be allowed to close. Its emergency room is the nearest to LAX--an acknowledged terrorist target. There is no other emergency room south of the 10 Freeway and west of the 405 Freeway between Santa Monica and Torrance, so it would be a necessary part of dealing with a disaster in the event that a major earthquake damaged freeway bridges.

Tenet Healthcare Corp. said Wednesday that it will close Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital, just six months after acquiring the Marina del Rey facility from a Catholic hospital chain. The closure of the 166-bed hospital and its emergency room--by August at the latest--will add to the burden on nearby ERs, county officials said. Nearly all of the county's 80 remaining emergency rooms are crowded, and patients often are forced to wait hours before they are seen by a doctor.

A 21-year-old rape victim filed suit Wednesday against a Catholic hospital for allegedly denying her information about and access to the "morning after pill" while she was receiving emergency treatment for the assault. Although the woman did not become pregnant, in so failing to inform or prescribe for a rape victim at risk of pregnancy, the hospital failed to provide optimal emergency treatment in accordance with the standards of good medical practice, the suit claims.

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.

About 150 people packed Inglewood City Hall on Thursday in a spirited hearing on the merits of the proposed sale of the nonprofit Daniel Freeman Hospitals to for-profit giant Tenet Healthcare Corp. The proposed $55-million deal involves a hospital in Inglewood and one in Marina del Rey. Purchases of not-for-profit hospitals by for-profit companies must be reviewed by the state attorney general, whose office held the meeting. Another public hearing will be held next month.
