Sutter to close San Mateo ER
San Mateo Daily Journal

The emergency room at Mills Health Center in San Mateo will close Dec. 1 to meet earthquake standards set by the state, hospital officials announced yesterday. The standby emergency department will be replaced with an urgent care center in the same space, scheduled to open in late 2013. It would cost between $60 million and $80 million to retrofit the one affected building at Mills which hospital officials said is “simply not feasible.”
