Wow! Thank you Pleasanton Weekly for the support you give to your community, not only with news but a helping hand placed within your community. I know first hand that the Emergency Room Expansion program at Valley Care needs help. I was there recently and the Emergency Waiting room was soo cramped and cold (the doors open and close often letting in cold wind and air) that there was standing room only at some points. I was there for 3-4 hours before I got to a bed in the ER to get checked out. Thanks again!
