L.A. County DHS Governance
For more than a decade, proposals for alternative governance of L.A. County Department of Health Services (DHS) have faced support and opposition. Some believe that new governance will promote system-wide planning, lead to better decision-making, improve efficiency and expand revenues. Others feel that reform will not solve the underlying problems facing the system. Given L.A. County DHSâ€™ projected budget deficit, the implementation of alternative management may move this system toward solvency.
