I read your article (May 2) concerning the allegations by the state Medi-Cal administration that UCI (Medical Center) is not scheduling Medi-Cal patients as rapidly as patients with other types of funding. I have no knowledge as to whether this is true. I do have strong feeling, though, on how UCI, on the whole, cares for the poor unfunded patients, including Medi-Cal, of Orange County. Since the sale of the Orange County hospital to the university system in 1976, UCI has been forced to perform as a "county hospital."
