San Francisco braces for major healthcare cuts

San Francisco Chronicle, March 3, 2008
San Francisco's budget landscape is the worst it has been in years, and the Public Health Department is facing the worst financial outlook anybody can remember. Doctors, nurses and patients are alarmed about the looming cuts, which total $33 million. Proposed public health cuts include closing the worker's compensation clinic at San Francisco General Hospital, closing Buster's Place, a 24-hour drop-in center for homeless people to receive referrals to housing and services, and reducing hours for the oral surgery clinic and operating rooms at San Francisco General.
