Healthways Signs Agreement with UCLA Health System to Bring the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease to Southern California

Healthways and the UCLA Health System have entered into an agreement to make the UCLA Health System an approved provider of the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease(TM) in southern California. The program helps individuals improve what they eat, how they respond to stress, how much activity they engage in, and how much support they receive as part of a program designed to prevent, treat and reverse heart disease by effecting lifestyle changes. Healthways will design staff and participant curricula, build the program's online presence, and train all staff, while the UCLA Health System will provide the staff, facilities and billing. Services will be delivered at the Westwood campus that will be designed specifically to optimize the patient experience. he Ornish programs have been proven effective in treating and reversing the impact of coronary artery disease, Type 2 diabetes and early-stage prostate cancer, chronic diseases that drive disproportionate medical costs and health-related lost productivity in businesses and communities throughout the country. The goals of the program are consistent with new trends in so-called value based reimbursement systems that provide incentives for improving patients' underlying health in a potentially more cost-effective manner.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA Health System Teams Up to Open Rehabilitation Hospital in Century City

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA Health System announced that are teaming up to open a 138-bed rehabilitation hospital in Century City, reflecting both the growing need for this specialty care and the pressure on hospitals to control costs. The two healthcare giants in West Los Angeles will jointly own the new hospital along with Select Medical Holdings Corp. The three partners say they plan to renovate the former Century City Hospital that has been closed for about four years and reopen it in late 2015.

Providence Health To Acquire Saint John's Health Center

Providence Health & Services is in negotiations with Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, Inc. to acquire Saint John's Health Center Foundation. After reviewing various offers including offers from UCLA Health System and Patrick Soon-Shiong, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System entered into exclusive negotiations with Providence Health & Services. Michael Slubowski, Chief Executive Officer of Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, said, "Providence was an ideal choice because it's the largest provider of Catholic healthcare in Los Angeles County with a strong network of hospitals and physicians. Partnering with Providence will place St. John's on a sustainable path forward." The transaction is still subject to approval by the California attorney general's office and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Patricia Aidem, spokeswoman of Providence, said “We're honored that we were selected and we are looking forward to sitting down to negotiate.” Donna Tuttle, Chairwoman of the St. John's hospital foundation supported Soon-Shiong's bid and said that she will urge Providence to consider teaming with Soon-Shiong. Donna Tuttle said “ Providence is not my first choice. I don't know much about them. I think of Patrick as a visionary, so we are wondering if there is any way to bring them together.” Donna Tuttle also said that she was relieved the bidding group including UCLA was not picked. She and others in the community had expressed concern that taking over St. John's would give UCLA too much market power on the city's Westside.
