Sonoma County Supervisor Pushing Kaiser Permanente To Improve Mental Health Care Services
Sonoma County Supervisor Shirlee Zane is calling on Kaiser Permanente to improve its mental health services after her husband committed suicide while under the care of Kaiser's Santa Rosa psychiatric department. Last year, the California Department of Managed Health Care levied a $4 million fine against Kaiser for inaccurately tracking patient access to therapists. The health system is appealing the decision.
