In reading the story entitled "Two Hospitals Combine Functions to Cut Costs" in Valley Business (March 2), I noticed a reference to the closure of Panorama Community Hospital a year ago. The article referenced the trend of hospital closures in Southern California for the past five years. Not mentioned, however, is the fact that Panorama Community Hospital reopened nine months later. Panorama Community Hospital once again resumed operations Nov. 3, 1992, after having been purchased by San Fernando Community Hospital.

Nearly 20 years after San Fernando saved its town hospital from financial ruin, city officials find themselves in a financial predicament. The hospital has had trouble making good on payments for city-issued bonds, and it's the town that is liable for the $2-million balance. City officials recently were sweating it out whether Mission Community Hospital's board of directors would make a $250,000 bond payment due at the end of November. If not, the city would have had to pay the balance.

A $4.2-million expansion planned for the 70-year-old San Fernando Community Hospital depends on the outcome of negotiations between city and hospital officials over a lien held by the city on the hospital property. Phil Boozer, the hospital's chief financial officer, said the hospital gave the city a "reversionary right" that allows it to take title to the hospital in seven years in return for lending its name to a municipal bond issue that financed the hospital's last expansion in 1978.

Arvizu, Wimberly and Avelar are among the 22 contestants who donated eight hours of their time to several nonprofit agencies this month--a requirement for competing in Friday's pageant.
