Decision should allow sale of hospitals to county to go through
South Valley residents worried that St. Louise Regional Hospital might close permanently learned late in the morning of Feb. 22 that the U.S. District Court denied the stay requested by California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, allowing its sale to Santa Clara County.
A federal bankruptcy court in Los Angeles ruled Jan. 30 against California Attorney General State Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s attempt to delay the sale of the Gilroy medical center, along with O’Connor Hospital in San Jose and the DePaul Health Center, to Santa Clara County.
The Department of Justice appealed that decision two days later, asking the U.S. District Court for an “emergency” stay. They argued the county has not agreed to the conditions set by Becerra’s predecessor, now-U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, for a 2015 sale of the hospitals to Verity Health Systems of California.
