Re "UCLA seeks extra funds for hospitals," Nov. 14 As one who retired several years ago from a three-decade career at UCLA's world-renowned medical center (the Ronald Reagan Medical Center), I feel it might be all right to ask some basic questions: How much did the late president's supporters agree to pay UCLA to have it named for him, when its estimated cost was "only" about $800 million? Now that the replacement hospital's cost has skyrocketed to more than $1 billion, how much of the original dollar commitment for applying Reagan's name to it has been fulfilled?

A young mother has become the first person to receive a hand transplant at UCLA’s new hand transplantation center, hospital officials reported Monday. The Northern California woman, 26, whose name was not released, had lost her right hand in a traffic accident five years ago. She was recovering Monday following a 14-hour procedure that concluded around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The operation was the 13th hand transplant in the United States and the first for the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, which opened its hand transplant unit last year.

State health regulators have fined Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center $95,000 for allowing unauthorized employees to view a patient's medical records, a breach that sources indicated targeted the files of Michael Jackson. The fine, one of six privacy-related penalties state officials announced Thursday, stems from multiple violations that led to the firing of two hospital employees. Two hospital contract workers were also fired for accessing the same patient's information, UCLA officials said.

The bride wasn't the only one wearing a gown. An intensive care unit at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center was the scene Saturday morning of a wedding designed around the bride's bedridden father, hospitalized since early July with a rare neuromuscular disorder. When Janette Villalobos, 20, realized that her father, Johnny, would not be able to attend her planned backyard wedding and barbecue in San Dimas, she and fiance Michael Arroyo decided to take the nuptials to him. They felt some urgency because Arroyo, 26, a Navy corpsman stationed in Twentynine Palms, is scheduled to leave Oct. 6 for a 14-month deployment in Afghanistan.

Running a marathon is usually considered solid proof of cardiovascular fitness. Not so for Jay Yim, a runner in the recent Los Angeles Marathon. Yim, 21, suffered a heart attack around mile 18 and was taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. He's expected to make a full recovery. Here's what happened: After Yim collapsed in West L.A., LAPD motorcycle officer Joshua Sewell was one of the first people to come to Yim's aid. When he got no response and found no pulse, Sewell yelled for someone to call an ambulance and recruited an LAPD bicycle officer to help administer CPR. Together, they performed chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Marcus Rios ran into UCLA's Spaulding Field practice facility for the first time in months on Tuesday. As he did, the sophomore cornerback glanced up at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center across the way. "Any time I'm walking down Westwood Boulevard, I look up there," Rios said. "I have been through a life-changing event. You have to remember. " Rios' workouts were far different early this year, and the view he had was looking down from the medical center to the practice field.

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.
