That is unfortunate. John Muir is not a good hospital.
Too many horror stories. San Ramon Regional is a much
better hospital and will now have to lower it's standards to
comply with Socialist Medicine. Keep well good people!

The one thing you know for sure -- this will result in less competition and your medical costs will rise even more than they would otherwise.

I AM SO GREATFUL FOR THIS THE ONLY OTHER OPTION IN THE AREA WOULD BE VALLEY CARE HEALTH SYSTEMS IN PLEASANTON THE DOCTORS THERE ARE GREAT BUT THE NURSING STAFF AT VALLEY CARE ACT AS IF THEY ARE DOING YOU A FAVOR BY DOING THERE JOBS. THEY ALSO SEEM VERY RACIST AT VALLEY CARE
GLAD TO SEE John Muir in San Ramon I hope they shut down valley care

Does NOT appear to help restore a Hospital to Livermore,
now that Valley Care, built originally by donations and funding from Livermore has moved away.
Do NOT go to the Livermore "Hospital" if you need an emergency room.

Every hospital in America is effected by Our Dear Leader's apocalyptic health care system that is going to be the undoing of this once great nation. True liberty means dying if you can't afford hospital care. Give me liberty and give me death!
