    • New York: Northwell Health and Hofstra University have renamed their medical school in honor of Donald and Barbara Zucker, who have donated $61 million to the facility in recent years. The school is now called the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. The couple's donations include $50 million for scholarships to medical students, $10 million to create the Barbara Hrbek Zucker Emerging Scientists Program for training postdoctoral fellows, and $1 million in scholarships for nursing school and physician assistant students (Paavola, Becker's Hospital Review, 8/31).

    • Oregon: After processing a backlog of eligibility checks, Oregon has dropped Medicaid coverage for more than 55,000 individuals.

The backlog, which encompassed 115,000 Medicaid beneficiaries, resulted from technology issues and a boost in Medicaid enrollment under the Affordable Care Act, according to the Associated Press (AP/Sacramento Bee, 9/1).
