Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles and Orthopaedic Hospital have begun discussing a possible merger aimed at developing a center for pediatric surgery and orthopedics that would be internationally renowned. The two hospitals, among the top three providers of charitable health care in California, began exploratory talks early this year. The discussions were triggered in part by what officials say is Childrens Hospital's growing shortage of beds and the availability of space at Orthopaedic.

UCLA Health System has agreed to pay $865,500 as part of a settlement with federal regulators announced Thursday after two celebrity patients alleged that hospital employees broke the law and reviewed their medical records without authorization. Federal and hospital officials declined to identify the celebrities involved. The complaints cover 2005 to 2009, a time during which hospital employees were repeatedly caught and fired for peeping at the medical records of dozens of celebrities, including Britney Spears, Farrah Fawcett and then-California First Lady Maria Shriver.

When missionary Linda Mendez was 10 months old, her grandmother noticed that her legs went out from under her whenever the toddler tried to take her first tentative baby steps. At her grandmother's urging, Mendez's parents took her to Orthopaedic Hospital in downtown Los Angeles, where doctors identified a congenital hip problem. Even though the family could not afford the $10,000 in medical costs, doctors still treated Linda, strapping braces on her legs.

In a rare nine-figure real estate deal, the Regents of the University of California have agreed to pay $147 million over 30 years to rent a medical facility planned in Santa Monica. Developer Randy Miller hopes to begin construction on the three-story building by August. It would rise on a parking lot at 1223 16th St., across the street from the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital. The final cost of the 50,000-square-foot development, including land acquisition, would be about $50 million, Miller said.

He sized up the towering shaft dangling dizzily Wednesday afternoon over South Flower Street and stepped back a few paces. "What's its length? Ninety-four feet? Then we'd better be standing more than 94 feet away, given its history," said Richard Colyear Jr. with a laugh. He should know. The Colyear Memorial Spire has experienced more than its share of ups and downs in the nearly 50 years it has stood atop Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital.

She never had children of her own, but Agnes Plumb still liked to help kids out. Even though she didn't have a job, she would still sit down at the kitchen table of her modest ranch-style home in Studio City and write a $250 check here or a $500 check there for local children's charities. So administrators at the Crippled Children's Society and Orthopaedic Hospital in Los Angeles weren't surprised to learn that the 88-year-old woman, who died a year ago, had remembered them in her will.
