In yet another sign of the financial crunch faced by hospitals in the managed-care era, the order of Catholic nuns that owns St. Joseph Medical Center is acquiring Holy Cross Medical Center, another Catholic hospital in Mission Hills. Hospital executives said Tuesday that both institutions and their emergency rooms will remain open, and they pledged to keep providing millions of dollars in free care to the poor--a major mission of both nonprofit facilities.

Employees at St. Joseph's Medical Center will have to wait until at least the end of the month to learn who will be among the 195 to be laid off, hospital officials said. "We will be trying to impact as few employees as possible with layoffs," said David O'Neill, acting administrator of the 650-bed hospital with 1,720 employees. The volume of patients this year has dropped even further than had been expected.

The mortal game cancer specialists have played for decades goes like this: blast the tumor, not the patient. A group of doctors at St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank are about to begin a new round in that confounding task, armed with a $250,000 device called a multi-leaf collimator.

Officials at St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank have decided to close the hospital's trauma center, dealing another blow to Los Angeles County's wobbly emergency services network, it was disclosed Monday. St. Joseph's board of governors recently decided to close the trauma center, which has lost $1.5 million annually for the last five years, said Mark Dundon, vice president of operations for the Sisters of Providence in Seattle, owners of the 647-bed hospital. Dundon said the decision to "discontinue" the hospital's participation in the county's trauma network came after many months of discussion among top hospital executives.
