"will give due consideration to the findings and recommendations in the report" is code for "will ignore the report"

I've worked at ECH for more than 35 years. The corporation was created as a device to shield strategic planning information from competing non-profit hospitals. Transperancy was to be avoided.

As I recall, years ago the California At General was considering an investigation into the mixing of tax payer funds when ECH merged with Camino Medical (now PAMF). The suit was dropped. Several million dollars were not acconted for.
