Two Los Angeles-area health-care firms are moving to open institutions exclusively for the care of AIDS patients. Beverly Enterprises of Pasadena said it intends to open a nursing home in Los Angeles devoted to AIDS patients. Meanwhile, American Medical International of Beverly Hills said it is converting a Houston hospital to treat AIDS patients and do research. Both Beverly and AMI believe that these institutions will be the first devoted to the care of only AIDS patients.

If everything falls right for the Kings, they could clinch a playoff spot before playing their next game Thursday night at Vancouver, Canada. Taking care of the only part of the equation in their control, they extended their winning streak to three games Monday night with a 3-0 victory over the Dallas Stars in front of a sellout crowd of 18,118 at Staples Center.

Mayor Tom Bradley's offer to have the city pay for after-school education and child-care programs on elementary school campuses in Los Angeles would create the most extensive school-city partnership for child care in the nation, officials said Tuesday.

A decisive vote in favor of a new property tax has recast the debate over Los Angeles County's foundering health-care system, probably saving two full-service public hospitals from closure -- at least for now. Measure B, which passed with 73.2% of the vote, earned more support than any other initiative or candidate in the county.

As the head of a Los Angeles nonprofit organization that bills itself as "the nation's largest public health plan," Howard Kahn knows a thing or two about public options for health insurance. And he gives cautious approval to the compromise plan unveiled in the Senate last week to break the logjam on healthcare reform and steer negotiations into the homestretch. The Senate proposal, which is still a work in progress, would forgo a purely public insurance plan in favor of a government-administered program offered by private insurers.

In the beauty business, a woman's place is in the kitchen (that being just another word for lab). In the first half of this century, the grande dames of cosmetics--Helena Rubinstein, Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder--started out behind the stove, cooking up batches of face cream from scratch. The results--Creme Valaze, Venetian Cream and Super Rich All Purpose Creme, respectively--launched cosmetic empires.

Dong-Uk Kim's parents came to Los Angeles 11 days ago as their last hope for saving the 10-year-old Korean child's life. The boy has a tumor the size of an adult's fist between his kidneys. After five futile months of chemotherapy in Seoul, doctors said they could do no more. So the Kims set out for America. But now, even American doctors have told them that the fourth-grader's chance for survival is nil. Still, Su-Tea and Hyon-Ja Kim remain hopeful.

Gilbert Saldate's been stood up, blown off and shooed away. He's heard every excuse, every lament, from people whose life contents are dumped in shopping carts or strewn about the pavement. "That's their right," he says--no offense taken, no judgment implied. Yet even he was growing exasperated with the couple living under the Hollywood Freeway near downtown Los Angeles. For three years, on and off, he'd been urging them to get drug treatment, apply for assistance, do something.

"Program for Needy Is Delayed" (June 17) may have left readers with the mistaken impression that L.A. Care Health Plan is responsible for delaying full implementation of a statewide managed care program for Medi-Cal beneficiaries in Los Angeles County. In fact, the delays stem from the Health Care Financing Administration's desire to see more progress from the state Department of Health Services in correcting problems with the implementation here. In communications from HCFA to DHS, L.A. Care Health Plan has not been cited as a reason for concern or requiring corrective action.

Amid anxiety over rising costs from the federal healthcare law, California received better-than-expected insurance rates for a new state-run marketplace, but many consumers still won't be spared from sharply higher premiums. Three years after President Obama's landmark law was passed, the state unveiled the first details Thursday on what many Californians can expect to pay for coverage from 13 health plans offering policies in the state's exchange, in which as many as 5 million people will shop for coverage next year.
