California  Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris has approved Prime Healthcare’s  controversial purchase of six nonprofit hospitals comprising the Daughters of Charity Health System, presumably ending a battle  that has, among other things, divided powerful labor unions.

The Sacramento Bee reported that Harris ”called the deal the largest ever overseen by the office, and it carries a hefty set of conditions requiring Prime to provide charity care ‘at historical levels’ and reproductive care without ‘restriction or limitation’; to spend $150 million on capital improvements at the newly acquired facilities; to cover the pension obligations of 17,000 active and retired employees; and to remain certified to treat Medi-Cal and Medicare patients for a decade.”
