SF Hospital Wants Dodgers To Pay For Bryan Stow’s Care

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – San Francisco General Hospital has asked the Los Angeles Dodgers to pick up the bill for the medical care of Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium on opening day 2011.

The Santa Cruz paramedic and father of two was assaulted outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, 2011. He spent months at a Los Angeles hospital in a medically induced coma before his transfer to SF General.

Hospital management is now seeking the $1.2 million from team insurers through a bankruptcy court filing, according to an LA times report. Stow’s family has filed a separate suit seeking about $50 million for Stow’s continued care. In that case, the family blames the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt for failing to provide safe conditions outside the ballpark, which they claim allowed for the brutal attack.

The 43 year old has since been transferred to private care. His injuries have left him with the mental capacities of a 12-year-old. He was recently well enough visit his family’s home and to attend game two of the World Series in October.
