Good riddance to the old Radiologists at El Camino. If they can't do the job, then the Administration has to hire a new group to take over. Radiology can be done from anywhere, including Australia or India. Whether it is good quality is irrelevant. Low cost is the key! More money for the hospital and bonuses for the Administration. Patients will not see any cost benefit from the lower cost and quality! If a tumor gets missed and a patient dies, that's just a cost of doing business! The hospital is expert at shifting blame for their mistakes. Maybe some of the OLD Radiologists can go work for Ed Bough, MD, El Camino Hospital District Board Member, at his new, competing, 64-slice CT scanner a block away on Grant Road!

As we say in the economics field, "Follow the money." The El Camino Radiologists couldn't attract new radiologists because their business was decreasing. This is directly related to the opening of the new Camino Medical Group building on El Camino with a new radiology suite, and the competing CT scanner owned and operated by District Board Member Ed Bough, MD, just up the street on Grant Road. There is no other reason why a viable business in operation for 45 years would give notice and close its doors. These new Radiology Groups will leave too if they find business is not as they expected.
