Who: Antelope Valley Hospital, via its attorneys McNicholas & McNicholas and The Sutton Law Firm, has filed a claim against the County of Los Angeles and its Board of Supervisors for failing to properly administer and allocate billions of tax dollars to trauma centers pursuant to Measure B.

The Measure B property tax was sold to voters in 2002 as a way to save and fund trauma centers throughout the County.  Antelope Valley Hospital (AV Hospital), however, which serves 5% of L.A.’s population and handles nearly 12.5% of the County’s trauma and ER visits, receives less than one half of one percent of all Measure B funds annually—the lowest of any trauma center in L.A. County.

Read full release.

What: Statements will be made by, and interview opportunities will be available with, attorneys, doctors and hospital administrators, including:

  • Patrick McNicholas, Partner at McNicholas & McNicholas
  • Brad Hertz, Partner at The Sutton Law Firm
  • Larry Stock, Medical Director of the AV Hospital Emergency Department
  • Dennis Knox, CEO of AV Hospital

The press conference will include:

  • An overview of the facts and the next steps to be taken by AV Hospital to protect its interests and its patients.
  • A media packet demonstrating the County’s improper and ongoing management of Measure B funds, and leaving AV Hospital trauma patients shortchanged.
