Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo declares fiscal emergency
Contra Costa Times

Reeling from yawning gaps between costs and revenues, in need of partnerships and unable to tap state or county funds, the West Contra Costa Healthcare District Board of Directors, which owns and operates Doctors Medical Center, declared a fiscal emergency for the hospital during a special meeting Tuesday night.

The five-member board voted unanimously to declare the emergency after hearing a presentation from interim hospital CEO Dawn Gideon.
