Community Regional Medical Center

Reactions to healthcare reform ruling from Community's CEO

Tim Joslin, CEO of Community Medical Centers

"Community Medical Centers has been in a leadership role in evolving and improving health care. We never assumed that the Affordable Care Act was going away. This law is an attempt to improve the health system but it doesn’t get us where we need to go. It doesn't ensure physicians and hospitals are adequately reimbursed, not just for our current patients but all the new ones we’ll see under Medi-Cal expansion. And it doesn’t address the unfunded mandates and regulations that impede the collaboration needed for innovation and cost-efficient care."

Registered nurse Reza Beheshti said he just couldn’t sign the discharge papers allowing a patient to walk away from Community Regional Medical Center’s emergency department – and risk possible paralysis. Reza was compelled to offer more than medical care when he heard the man’s dilemma.
