In re Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Verity Health System of California, Inc., et al., Case No. 18-20151 (ER)
United States Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California
General Information:

On August 31, 2018, each of the 17 Debtors filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”). The cases (collectively, the “Bankruptcy Cases”) are jointly administered under Case No. 18-20151 before the Honorable Ernest M. Robles, in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (the “Bankruptcy Court”).

Committee of Unsecured Creditors

On Friday, September 14, 2018, the United States Trustee held a meeting to appoint an Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors ("Committee"). The Committee represents the interests, and acts on behalf of all unsecured creditors. Members of the Committee are generally selected from the list of the twenty largest unsecured creditors. Under the Bankruptcy Code, the Committee has the right to demand that the debtor consult with the Committee before making major decisions or changes, to request the appointment of a trustee or examiner, to participate in the formation of a plan of reorganization, and in some cases, to propose its own plan of reorganization. If appropriate, the Committee may request that the Bankruptcy Court convert a chapter 11 case to one under chapter 7, at which time the debtor's operations would cease and its assets would be liquidated. The Committee is authorized to select and employ an attorney and other necessary professionals, subject to court approval. Fees of professionals employed by the Committee may be paid from available assets, if any, of the bankruptcy estate after court approval. Further, Committee members' actual expenses may be reimbursed from estate assets.

On Monday, September 17, 2018, the United States Trustee filed the Appointment of Committee of Creditors Holding Unsecured Claims appointing the following nine (9) creditors to the Committee:

Aetna Life Insurance Company
Allscripts Healthcare, LLC
California Nurses Association (CNA)
