Regent Hills Health Centre (RHHC) a new name for the centre will be revealed this spring is a new concept in Canadian Health Care. It is a structured finance model, with no public subsidization. That will optimizes patients’ lives by responding to their need for wellness in an holistic fashion. It is also a business solution for the Canadian health care system and insurance companies. Providing rapid response to the need for state of the art surgical space/expertise, RHHC offers a greatly reduced wait time for clients. For some, this means an earlier return to work, for others a timely release from pain, for all it will be an holistic approach to healing. The positive spin-offs in terms of patient care, business efficiency, training and education for the medical profession and overall regional economic development are enormous.

Melvin J. Howard to Restructure CENTURION HEALTH CORPORATION to become a boutique merchant bank for the health care Industry
Health care needs have changed. Worldwide pressures for increased spending stem from technological and demographic changes, such as an ageing population, changing disease patterns and an increase of immigration in most developed countries. At the same time, the need for high technological health care facilities has increased in recent years and is expected to continue to do so in the future. In most under developed and some developed countries access to such facilities is limited at best.
Demand for state of the art medical facilities continues to rise, however many countries worldwide lack the ability to provide certain capital-intensive medical technologies and services. Centurion Health Corporation will establish partnerships with community hospitals, regional medical centers and academic teaching hospitals internationally to provide access and management service for life saving medical facilities. The role of private foreign capital in developing countries has increased sharply in the past ten years, because of higher returns, risk diversification, financial deregulation, advances in technology, availability of diverse financial instruments, and the globalization of financial markets.
Yet, access to basic health services has remained stagnant for the past 20 years. Private participation with government incentives in health infrastructure must increase, if we are to stop the suffering and deaths that occur needlessly because of the lack of or limited access to basic health care services. Centurion Health Corporation has taken its cues from the World Health Organization. Many countries in both the developed and developing world routinely make use of private provision, particularly for health services, where private practice and private hospitals are widespread in addition to public providers. Moreover, public policy and funding functions are separable from provision of the service. Governments thus have the option to tap private initiative, while providing funding to deal with affordability concerns. Private provision is thus one of the tools for governments in their effort to build out social service systems that provide universal access.
These are just some of the objectives of Centurion Health Corporation. Our goal will be to improve access to high tech surgical and medical facilities on an international basis by:
§ Designing the expansion of international collaborative projects, that contributes to the integration of public and private health care service delivery mechanisms.
§ Generating fundamental long-range cost planning models to improve the health status of historically medically underserved populations.
§ Using information systems to collect performance statistics, from various caseload data, which will allow us to provide appropriateness for quality of care and outcomes of care, to physicians, hospitals and governments.

Subject: Re:Senate Bill 840
Thank you for sending me your email opposing SB 840. Hearing from my fellow Californians is very important to me as I work to improve our great state.
After extensive and thorough deliberation from proponents and opponents of this issue, I have decided to veto this bill. Socialized medicine is not the solution to our state's health care problems. SB 840 would have required an extraordinary redirection of public and private funding by creating a vast new bureaucracy to take over health insurance and medical care for Californians. Such a program would have cost the state billions and led to significant new taxes on individuals and businesses, without solving the critical issue of health care affordability.
I want to see a new paradigm that addresses affordability, shared responsibility and the promotion of healthy living. I look forward to working with the Legislature in 2007 to develop a comprehensive approach to health care that not only provides affordable medical treatment to people when they are ill, but also strives to make sure people do not get sick in the first place. This approach should support cost containment and recognize the shared responsibility of individuals, employers and government.
As part of this comprehensive approach, I have worked hard to address preventative measures, such as fighting obesity by signing legislation that bans junk food and sugar-laden drinks in public schools. On the question of access, I've made children's coverage a priority, resulting in nearly a quarter million additional children covered by our Medi-Cal and Healthy Families programs. Most recently, I reached an agreement with the Legislature to provide discounts on prescription drugs of up to 60 percent for our most vulnerable citizens.
Thank you again for writing to me. Your active participation in the democratic process will help ensure a brighter future for California.
