Both hospitals are part of American Academic Health System, a subsidiary of Paladin Healthcare. Paladin, a hospital management company based in El Segundo, Calif., acquired Hahnemann and St. Christopher's from Tenet Healthcare Corp. for $170 million last year.
A few months after that acquisition was completed, longtime Hahnemann CEO Michael Halter left the hospital and David Small was named interim CEO. Later in 2018 Anthony Rajkumar took over as interim-CEO at Hahnemann.
