The hospice industry has been booming across the nation. It’s a multi-billion dollar business dominated by for-profit operators.

Now, an L.A. Times investigation has found the epicenter of this explosive growth is here in L.A. County, which has seen a wave of fraud and in some cases poor care for those in their final days of life.
