Los Angeles

Among the Los Angeles market’s hospitals, the gap is growing between the financially advantaged “haves” and the disadvantaged “have-nots.” The “haves” serve a predominantly affluent and insured population and enjoy leverage with health plans, while the “have-nots” serve largely Medi-Cal and uninsured patients.
