Bills To Preserve ED Care in South Orange County Stall
Two bills have stalled in committee that aim to maintain access to emergency care services in south Orange County after MemorialCare Health System announced plans to close its emergency department have stalled. The Senate and Assembly health committees have postponed the bills (AB 911, SB 787), but sponsors Assembly member Bill Brough (R-Dana Point) and Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) say they are hopeful the committee will hear the bills in 2016.
