Critics like Kaiser but not Manteca cutbacks
Manteca Bulletin

Gary Lemesh shudders to think if Kaiser-Manteca Medical Center were to make more cuts.

His aging mother is one of 10 long-term patients in sub-acute care, which, according to register nurse Clarice Spann-Reeve, was inherited by Kaiser Permanente after taking over St. Dominic’s Hospital in 2004.

“Gary’s mom has a mind that’s fully functional. Only her body has given out on her,” she said at the ‘Town Hall on Cuts & Closures at Kaiser-Manteca Medical Center’ session hosted by the California Alliance for Retired Americans on Wednesday at the Manteca Transit station.
