Cash-strapped Doctors Medical Center stops accepting ambulances
San Francisco Chronicle

Residents of western Contra Costa County needing emergency ambulance rides will have to look farther then Doctors Medical Center, as the cash-strapped San Pablo hospital will no longer be accepting ambulances as of Thursday.

The emergency room will still accept walk-ins, but patients being transported in ambulances will be redirected to Kaiser Permanente’s Richmond campus, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley or other area emergency rooms.
