Hospitals in Silicon Valley upgrade facilities and add beds
San Jose Business Journal - Mary Duan

Health care reform was a moving target at the end of 2009, and experts said it will remain that way until the very day and hour Congress enacts legislation in 2010. But even as hospital CEOs and industry leaders wait for that, they are preparing for an environment where reform could lead to more patients with better coverage. For Silicon Valley hospitals, that means projects that convert patient files into electronic medical records. San Jose’s O’Connor Hospital plans to do that in 2010, plus build new facilities and add beds.
