Contra Costa County Clinic Seeing More Need for Care
RotaCare Pittsburg clinic in Contra Costa County has started referring patients to other sites and is trying to recruit more primary care physicians. Barbara Hunt -- development director at St. Vincent de Paul, which is a co-sponsor of the clinic -- said the situation calls attention to the need for more health care services in the county, which has about 140,000 uninsured residents. The no-cost clinic opened in February.
