Could anyone help me understand why a successful suburban hospital that brings in quite a bit of money through the services it provides should still be receiving a large taxpayer subsidy, rather than operating like a normal, private, unsubsidized non-profit hospital?

Let us get new blood at El Camino Hospital; old board members had the opportunity to introduce many innovations and necessary restrictions that never were implemented.

To answer your question with a question - Why should they operate independently when they can get their normal income plus also get taxpayer money and not have any accountability to taxpayers?
Why is there a hospital corporation? Shouldn't the hospital district own the hospital directly without this intermediate unaccountable layer? The school district owns the schools and the city owns city hall and the water district owns its wells and the community college district owns the colleges.
