Odds grow longer for effort to preserve services at Doctors Medical Center
Contra Costa Times

Physicians, nurses and community members fighting to keep Doctors Medical Center open as a full-service hospital said Tuesday they weren’t giving up despite a double dose of bad news last week.

The odds are growing longer, however, after a judge denied their injunction request to reinstate services that have recently been reduced and a bill that would have designated DMC a public hospital, allowing it to collect higher reimbursement rates, failed to make it out of the state Legislature.
