QUESTION 4:

Basis for reduction of 100 beds at the hospital being constructed at Loma Linda, and accompanying demographic study, if made.

ANSWER:

The reduction in the bed capacity at Loma Linda is consistent
with the overall reduction in census of the Veterans Administration
hospitals resulting from increased turnover rates. A revised
demographic study for the Southern California area has not been
made. However, experience at our new hospital in San Diego, as
well as the other hospitals in Southern California, indicates that
hospitalization needs of veterans are being met with substantially
less beds than anticipated.five years ago. To avoid building in
excess of requirements, the proposed capacity at Loma Linda was
reduced by one complete nursing unit for each of the following
services: medicine, psychiatry, and nursing home care.

QUESTION 5:

Estimate of the costs of new and impending affiliations for fiscal year 1974, including a breakdown of staffing needs and funding needs in terms of patient care, education, and research.

ANSWER:

Potential affiliations are now under consideration at 10 stations, a listing of which is attached. Inasmuch as it is uncertain as to which of these will become operative during FY 1974, and since the staffing and funding needs relating to patient care, education and research are affected not only by the type of medical school involved, but also by the ability to make the education and research programs operative, it is impossible to provide any precise breakdown of costs.
