John Gioia: State, Kaiser, Muir not willing to save Doctors Med Center
San Francisco Business Times

John Gioia, the Contra Costa County supervisor most involved with troubled Doctors Medical Center, slated for closure unless a fiscal miracle occurs, said options for saving the safety net hospital are vanishing. The state of California has made it clear it won’t play a role, Gioia told me late Monday, and Kaiser Permanente and John Muir Health “so far are not willing to be part of any long-term, continued funding of the hospital,” which provides ER and other services to about 250,000 residents of West Contra Costa County.
