San Francisco Business Times

John Muir Health has donated $1 million to help Contra Costa Health Services, the county’s health system, to offer expanded evening and weekend care at its new West County Health Center in San Pablo. The new center is scheduled to open in about six weeks, officials at Walnut Creek-based John Muir said Tuesday. The additional clinic hours will help avoid unneeded trips to the emergency room at cash-strapped Doctors Medical Center, also in San Pablo, according to Dr. William Walker, director of the county’s health services.
