Hospital to get permanent oversight

The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to create a new governing board to oversee San Joaquin General Hospital, a move county officials said would help keep the public hospital financially sound in the rapidly shifting and ever-competitive world of health care.

“We have to build a better mousetrap,” Supervisor Larry Ruhstaller said. “We just have to be smarter, quicker, and we have to be able to react to the changes that are going to be coming at us.”
