Does anybody know of any hospitals in the LA area that will accept a foreign patient here on vacation without insurance if they are willing to pay the bill?
Thanks

Any hospital should do that. Also, if it's not a critical situation, there are usually Doc-in-box clinics which will be a lot cheaper than a hospital for simple things (minor injury, infections, etc).

All hospitals are required by law to accept any patient who shows up in their emergency room.  No exceptions.

The patient has actually been accepted into the ER, but was dismissed after a week after doctors determined they could not treat it. However, the patient is experiencing severe pain from the cancer and to be treated at a hosptial for a longer period of time.

What did the ER doctors say?  Do you need a surgeon, oncologist, radiologist, hospice, what?  There are all kinds of cancers and various stages of advancement.  Please be more specific or we won't be of much help.

The ER released him to release resources for other paying patients, which is in any private organization's rights.  They clearly said they could not treat him (I assume based upon inability to pay).  Take him to the state/local government funded hospital.  They will even treat anyone; even illegal aliens.  

I do not agree with either situation, but that's how it is.
