In re The Total Woman Healthcare Center, P.C. (06-52000)

The United States Trustee contended that the debtor was a "health care business" and asked the court to order the appointment of a "patient care ombudsman" under 11 U.S.C.A. ยง333. The court held that under the specific facts presented in evidence, the appointment of an ombudsman was not necessary for the protection of patients. The court did not decide the issue of whether the debtor was a "health care business."
