Relying on cuts alone will devastate our health care system

Earthquakes are a real threat. Yet, there are other ways that Santa Clara County's health care system could fall apart.

In Today's Mercury News, Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System CEO Kim Roberts puts it like this: "It is no exaggeration to say that Valley Medical Center is the cornerstone of the county's health care system. Without it, our county health care system would collapse.

"I'm not being dramatic. it would, in fact, collapse."

Not convinced? Read her Special to the Mercury News...because facts are facts.

Medical care in our community is absolutely at risk, and whether we're discussing seismic safety or Schwarzenegger's proposed draconian cuts, WE ALL have a role to play in solving this crisis.
