Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, formerly known as Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, is a private hospital located at 1300 North Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles, California. The hospital has 434 beds.
In February 2007, an investigation was launched after a hospital official allegedly "dumped" 54-year-old Gabino Olvera, a paraplegic patient, on a Skid Row street. According to witnesses, Olvera was removed from a hospital van and was left writhing in a gutter, wearing nothing more than a soiled gown and a broken colostomy bag. The hospital agreed to pay US$1,000,000 and be monitored for up to 5 years as part of a settlement agreement reached in 2008.
In 2016, the hospitals computer system was hijacked by ransomware forcing the hospital to use paper. Patients were asked to pick up lab results in person. The hospital paid a 40 bitcoin ransom that was then worth approximately US$17,000 to the hackers to regain access to their system.
