From its perch on a hilltop off busy Prospect Avenue in Redondo Beach, South Bay Medical Center certainly doesn't look like a hospital that time has left in the dust. On a typical weekday, the parking lots are full. The imposing five-story main building, sparkling white with blue trim in the morning sun, looks as fresh and new as the day it opened its doors in 1960. Just inside, a busy workout room is crowded with senior citizens and firefighters on exercise bicycles and weight machines.

Ten California hospitals received fines Thursday for errors that resulted in either serious injury or death to a patient. The California Department of Public Health issued a total of $785,000 in penalties for errors that include removing the wrong kidney, leaving surgical objects behind and failing to call for assistance when a patient began bleeding excessively. The civil fines, ranging from $10,000 to $100,000, were issued to hospitals throughout the state for errors that occurred in 2010 and 2011.

A decision on the future of the South Bay Medical Center in Redondo Beach has been placed on hold until next month. The Beach Cities Health District, the public agency that owns the hospital, was scheduled to make a decision on the hospital's future Thursday.

Joe Garcia doesn't remember much about the heart attack that nearly took his life in October 1996, when he collapsed in the middle of the Manhattan Beach Old Home Town Fair 10-kilometer run. He learned afterward that paramedics did all they could while rushing him to the emergency room at South Bay Medical Center in nearby Redondo Beach.
