If all philanthropists were required to be morally upright, hospitals would be low on new wings and colleges would be starved for buildings.

Re "Cedars, UCLA cut from L.A. health plan," Sept. 21 Before my retirement, I was an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for more than 30 years. I took care of hundreds of Medicare and Medi-Cal patients. I can count on one hand the number of celebrities I cared for. Cedars is a nearly 1,000-bed hospital occupied mostly by regular patients. It is expensive because it strives for the best treatment, does invaluable research, teaches physicians and is often not paid for the care it provides.
