ValleyCare Health Systems will become endangered as the conglomerate medical systems keep encroaching. These conglomerates weaken independents and then buy them out at low prices. One of the prime reasons that the price of medical care is so high in Northern California, and consequently medical insurance premiums are so high, is a very few conglomerates control a huge share of the hospitals and medical centers.

This is the great news. Pleasanton is lacking in urgent care. I'm not sure what Obamacare has to do with us getting more health care...but folks like CITIZEN just need something to complain about.

It will provide ER care for individuals who are not insured so that they receive proper medical treatment.

I'll make sure that I add it to my list of community resources that undocumented individuals/families can utilize in an emergency or for regular medical care.
