For the second time in five weeks, 330 unionized nurses and other employees of Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center went on a one-day strike Friday to protest wages and staffing levels, and were joined by 75 strikers and Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl at Midway Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles. Both hospitals are owned by Santa Barbara-based Tenet Healthcare Corp.

It makes sense when you think about it. Lauren Schwartz of Moorpark points out that a concert by Jack Mack & the Heart Attack was sponsored by Encino Tarzana Regional Medical Center. I forgot to ask if the audience received wrist tags at the gate. Which reminds me: Evelyn Hill of Malibu noticed that the restaurant in the Santa Monica Medical Plaza parking structure is named the Cutting Board.

It's dinner time for the premature babies sleeping in their incubators, and tiny Alexes, responding to an inner clock, is beginning to stir from her slumber. She stretches--forearms and hands together no bigger than a man's thumb--and yawns soundlessly. A smile teases the corners of her mouth. Care for Alexes--born 14 weeks prematurely--is part of a medical technique once considered too risky for babies so tiny.

Name a diet and Jody Keeler, a Van Nuys legal assistant, has tried it. She loaded her shopping cart with pineapples on the Beverly Hills diet, dined on little boxed meals on Jenny Craig, sipped "shakes" on a liquid fast, mixed and matched menu items on the food combination diet and selected from "exchange lists" on Weight Watchers. With each fad diet and commercial program, Keeler quickly dropped 10 or 15 pounds--and gained them back even faster.

Hospitals usually aren't high on anyone's must-see list. Most people would do almost anything to avoid walking through those off-putting automatic front doors. But many hospitals have been working hard to change that perception. Most routinely give tours to pregnant couples and siblings-to-be, to demystify the facility before the birthday. A tour of a local hospital can appeal to a wider audience than just a growing family.

In an apparent victory for management, nurses at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center voted Friday to accept a two-tier raise structure that will give the most senior caregivers a 6% wage increase and less experienced nurses a 4% increase over the next 21 months. The deal ends a four-month dispute between the nurses and the hospital's owner, Santa Barbara-based Tenet Healthcare Corp. Initially, the nurses had rejected the two-tier system, saying it was designed to break the union.
