Our much needed expansion remains on track.... our management team continues to work with physicians, staff, architects and community leaders to develop master campus plans for our 117+acre hospital campus. Look for "dirt to begin moving" this coming October for a two-story, 22,500-square-foot add-on to the outpatient care facility and additional parking.  The expanded area is expected to open in the Fall 2009.

It's time to be transparent. Status quo is not an option. Thanks to some personal pet peeves and a few takeaways from Modern Healthcare magazine, I've fully got some skin in the cliché game.

The red ink at San Joaquin General Hospital is supposed to be $32 million deep by end of June. It's one of few remaining county-run hospitals in California. Now county supervisors and some area hospitals are sort of talking about what they can do/want to do to avert an inevitable death by poor-patient overload and fiscal starvation.

It was a reasonable question from my husband based on the fact that I was 6 months pregnant with #2 son and every rollercoaster ride we came had an obnoxiously visible sign that warned pregnant women not to ride. My nurse friend and I decided, "hey, that baby is in the best shock-absorber ever made, sure it's OK if I ride." (Confession-I escaped the rollercoaster "police" by wearing a bulky coat to hide the obvious).
