Pulitzer prize winning LA Times journalist Charles Ornstein (C’96, Daily Pennsylvanian Executive Editor) just broke yet another story. This time it’s inside UCLA Medical Center, a premiere Los Angeles hospital where Britney Spears’ medical records were probed unnecessarily and illegally by 25 employees (including doctors). Thirteen of them were fired, another 12 disciplined.
As mentioned above, Charles won a Pulitzer prize back in 2005. He was part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its coverage of King/Drew Medical Center, which closed down after failing many federal inspections.
On a related note, Charles works with Daniel Costello (C’95), another Penn journalist alum at the LA Times covering health business.
