Progress on Seismic Safety Mixed at California Hospitals
SeveralÂ hospitals in the San Francisco Bay Area have started or are planning construction projects or upgrades to comply with state seismic mandates for inpatient facilities. However, financial and political issues are stymieing some projects atÂ other large facilities in the region. The timeline to finish projects ranges from 2013 to 2020 based on hospitals' finances and on how the state evaluates the necessity of the work.
