Los Medanos Community Healthcare looks to escape deal with state
The Mercury News

An East Contra Costa public health care district is looking to get out of a deal that has allowed the county to rent the Los Medanos Hospital building for far less than market value with no rent increases for the past 13 years. To escape the agreement, which allows the county to operate a health clinic in the building for $100,000 a year, the Pittsburg-based Los Medanos Community Healthcare District must come up with $1.5 million to pay off a 13-year-old agreement from the state Department of Health Planning and Development.
