The board of directors of troubled Calexico Hospital in the Imperial Valley has voted to fire administrator Robert Trautman from his $96,000-a-year job. The 4-1 vote came Monday night after months of feuding between Trautman and the Calexico Chronicle. The weekly newspaper's publisher and managing editor, Lupe Acuna and Hildy Carrillo-Rivera, are hospital board members. The 35-bed public hospital has been virtually empty in the last year and employees have gone weeks without being paid.

State health officials on Tuesday cleared nine Southern California hospitals of wrongdoing in refusing to admit a dying Westminster man. Relatives of 43-year-old Juan Jimenez Collado had charged that he would have survived if he had been transferred from an Imperial County hospital to a better-equipped urban hospital. They also complained that hospitals in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties had rejected Jimenez because he did not have private health insurance.

A Laguna Hills nurse who for 12 years has worked to save lives now lies tethered to a lung machine at UC San Diego Medical Center, waiting for an organ transplant needed to save her own life. Catherine Renee Williams, 34, has spent a month at the hospital, while doctors search to find suitable donors for a lung or heart-lung transplant. She suffers from Eisenmenger's Complex, a rare disease that has left a hole the size of a silver dollar in her heart and has also damaged her lungs.

University of California investigators have exonerated medical centers at UC Irvine, UCLA and UC San Diego for refusing to admit a fatally injured Westminster man who lacked health insurance. Relatives of Juan Jimenez Collado, who suffered massive injuries in a Memorial Day weekend traffic accident, say he would have lived if he had been been transferred from Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley to a better-equipped facility in Orange, San Diego or Los Angeles counties.
