San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care

The firm represents the official committee representing unsecured creditors in the chapter 11 bankruptcy of San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corporation in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California in San Diego, California. The hospice filed for bankruptcy protection as a result of ongoing operational losses and disputes with Medicare & Medicaid over payments under the Medicare program. Before the filing, the nonprofit hospice provided specialized care to over 4,000 patients facing terminal illness annually. The case is a liquidating chapter 11; the hospice has ceased operations and transferred all of its patients to other hospice care providers.
