A key committee of the California Public Employees' Retirement System backed its staff's recommendation to break up Blue Shield of California's statewide HMO contract. The agency's pension and health benefits committee voted Tuesday in favor of awarding health-maintenance-organization contracts to both Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to cover most of the state. The committee also supported giving an HMO contract to UnitedHealth Group Inc. in portions of Northern and Southern California and enlisting Sharp Health Plan in San Diego County.

No more bouncing from chain to chain for the Ojai Valley Community Hospital. It soon will be owned by the people it serves: the Ojai Valley community. That will keep it from being closed, as had been contemplated by the Tennessee-based chain that is the 40-year-old hospital's fourth owner since 1987. And thanks to a shift to nonprofit status, it should have a healthy long-term prognosis.

The sale of Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center to a for-profit chain could lead to "overall destabilization" of the greater Hollywood area's emergency medical system, according to a state-mandated report.

FHP International Corp. said Wednesday that it will bring to Orange County an option already offered at its other locations: the opportunity for members to use private physicians and hospitals.

In a sudden shift of top managers following months of bad financial news, the hospital chain that owns St. John's Regional Medical Center announced Friday reassignment of the hospital's top administrator and the resignation of its medical director. A terse, three-paragraph memo from Catholic Health Care West did not mention the reason for the moves. And hospital representatives would not elaborate. But the changes follow the hospital's closure of an acute-care wing in March to save money.

In what was widely seen as a sign of good health in the hospital industry, Tenet Healthcare Corp., the nation's No. 2 hospital chain, reported strong financial gains Wednesday, helped by more favorable HMO contracts and higher Medicare payments. Tenet also appeared to benefit from the aging population of baby boomers. The Santa Barbara-based company said its two strongest growing groups of patient admissions were those between the ages of 41 and 50 and 51 and 60.

Harvey, chairman, president and chief executive of Transamerica Corp., a once-sprawling conglomerate that is returning to its roots in insurance and financial services. Harvey's first major act after being named chief executive in 1981 was to sell Transamerica's United Artists subsidiary, a studio whose distinguished heritage was tarnished by its embarrassing $40-million investment in the film boondoggle "Heaven's Gate."
