Doctors Medical Center gets OK for $10M emergency loan from Contra Costa County
San Francisco Business Times

Doctors Medical Center, a struggling public hospital in San Pablo, as expected won approval Tuesday night for an emergency $10 million county loan, but Contra Costa County supervisors warned it must get its financial house in order. The supervisors unanimously voted to loan $10 million to the safety net hospital, which is facing both a short-term cash flow crunch and longer term fiscal concerns due to its patient mix, which is made up largely of Medi-Cal and uninsured patients.
