More wasted tax dollars - abolish this Health Care District

Original post made by Peter Carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on May 29, 2012

"When the taxpayer-funded Peninsula Health Care District established a loan program to attract new physicians in 2003, officials promoted it as a way to address doctor shortages in parts of San Mateo County.

But nearly a decade later, no physicians have completed the program. The district has not actively promoted the incentives, even after expanding it in 2006 to include other specialties. As a result, critics say, hundreds of thousands of dollars that could have financed community health programs has languished over the years."
