Potential hospital sale has officials in holding pattern
San Mateo Daily Journal

The possible sale of six Daughters of Charity Health System hospitals has local officials cautiously optimistic about the future of Daly City and coastside facilities that provide a large piece of the county’s health care to the indigent and residents further away from the main medical center. But with news of the proposed sale barely announced this week, these same officials say they are largely taking a wait-and-see approach because it is unclear whether a potential buyer will continue operating Seton Medical Center and Seton Coastside and, if so, commit to existing arrangements with San Mateo County for its low-income patients.
