“Access Denied?” …a groundbreaking new report.

A new study was released today by The Health Trust that shines a light on some major problems in Silicon Valley…problems we can and must solve.

Among the crucial issues contained in their report, Access Denied?, are the alarming lack of hospital beds per capita in our community, and the worstening plight of the uninsured and “under-insured.” The stories of VMC’s patients in the study are astounding examples of the human spirit…worth your time to read.

This ground-breaking report also points to the seismic mandate facing hospitals in California, which of course Measure A will address if approved by voters on November 4. More on Measure A in today’s Mercury News.
