The head of the board that governs Doctors Medical Center is expected to unveil a proposal to keep the struggling hospital afloat for five more years as a full-service facility at Tuesday’s West Contra Costa Healthcare District meeting.

The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. at the hospital auditorium, 2000 Vale Road. “At the meeting, I will outline the shared sacrifice and contribution that will be required from the private sector, DMC employees, government, other area hospitals and WCCHD property taxpayers,” board President Eric Zell Zell wrote in a statement in advance of the meeting.
