Board votes to close Doctors Medical Center in April
Inside Bay Area

The West Contra Costa Healthcare District board voted Thursday to close Doctors Medical Center in less than four weeks, after years of financial losses and unsuccessful attempts to find a sustainable way to keep it open.

The closure is slated to begin April 21, to give officials time to vet a late-inning proposal by a self-described hospital turnaround specialist with a mixed track record.
