AHF Sues L.A. Housing Dept. to Prevent Closure of AIDS Site
Date:2/24/2008

pears to be telling us that we must operate Linn House for services that the majority of people thankfully no longer need. It seems LAHD would prefer that no services be provided, rather than the valuable, lifesaving services which are provided there today, but which are not listed according to their reading of a fourteen year-old contract."

"Following the arrival and widespread availability of lifesaving antiretroviral AIDS drug therapies in 1996, AIDS is no longer a death sentence, and the need for end-of-life hospice care for AIDS patients in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the US quickly diminished, rendering the need for hospice facilities such as Linn House moot," said Donna Stidham, Chief of Managed Care for AIDS Healthcare Foundation. "As a result, AHF ceased operating Linn House as an AIDS hospice in 1999, and we began using the facility to provide services to people with HIV/AIDS, including providing case management, care and treatment for people with HIV/AIDS in the community, as the hub of our Medi-Cal managed care program, Positive Healthcare. The parameters of AIDS care and treatment have changed radically for the better in the last decade: We now work together with patients to help them manage their disease, keep them alive and well and from hopefully ever needing AIDS hospice services. By insisting that the House be used for services that are no longer needed, LAHD is jeopardizing the quality care the people with HIV/AIDS need now."

The disputed contract covers a $1.1 million, forty-year loan granted to AHF by the LAHD in 1994 to help with the construction AHF's Linn House, a 25- bed AIDS hospice located in Los Angeles (near the West Hollywood border) that was initially intended to serve terminally ill AIDS patients during their final days. In order to settle this dispute, AHF made several good faith offers, including one to fully repay the $1.1 million loan provided that the City and Housing Department waive more than $700,000 in interest
