CA insurer gives $2 million for Paradise health services after fire
San Francisco Chronicle

The health insurer Blue Shield of California has donated $2 million to one of the largest medical groups in the town of Paradise to help restore health care services to residents affected by November’s Camp Fire.

The contribution, announced Tuesday, is one of the largest publicly disclosed corporate donations to Paradise fire victims, and one of the only ones to focus specifically on restoring medical services in the area. The other, a $5 million gift to the town’s largest health provider, Adventist Health, came from a company that did not want to be named, but that money is also being used to restore health services, said Adventist Health spokesman Joshua Cowan.
