On Jan. 18, an article appeared in the Los Angeles Times concerning the establishment of emergency treatment stations in Calabasas. There were several misstatements attributed to Dr. Arnold Bresky that I would like to clarify. Dr. Bresky is quoted as saying that in the time following the Northridge earthquake, West Hills Regional Medical Center was not working or able to function effectively. This is totally erroneous. More than 300 patients were treated after the earthquake on Jan. 17, 1994, in the Emergency Department at West Hills Regional Medical Center.
