Medical Groups Concerned Over S.F. Health Master Plan
Several health care providers in San Francisco -- including Catholic Healthcare West, Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health -- are expressing opposition to legislation by Supervisor David Campos that would establish a citywide health services master plan. The proposal would increase oversight of health care facilities,Â as well as ofÂ construction and expansion plans. Last week, the Land Use Committee of the Board of Supervisors delayed further action on the bill until later this month.
