The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors voted to approve $20
million in funding to keep Daly City’s Seton Medical Center open
amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
The board voted 4-1 Tuesday, to allocate $5 million annually over
the next four years to keep the hospital open and avoid creating
a health care desert. Verity Health Systems, the hospital’s
owner, filed for bankruptcy in 2018 and had been planning to
shutter the hospital as soon as this week.
On Oct. 22, Hospital Council’s San Francisco Section sponsored
the triennial Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Breakfast
with San Francisco Health Improvement Partnership (SFHIP).
Results of the 2019 CHNA were presented, and current programs
addressing the five priority health needs were highlighted.
The SFHIP described its three priorities: community healing,
economic inclusion, and food security.
“What else is possible if we align our efforts and strengthen our
collaborations?” attendees were asked, as they were challenged to
join SFHIP members in advancing health equity by:
Aligning their organization’s work to address the health
needs identified in the CHNA
Collaborating with SFHIP to work towards community healing,
economic inclusion, and food security
Sharing wisdom, experience, and ideas to contribute to a
citywide effort that is more impactful than any of the
stakeholders could be when working on their own
Attendees came from a wide range of government, hospital, health
care, and community-based not-for-profit organizations. Local
leaders in attendance included:
Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco)
Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco)
