Show me the need


Dear ER:

The South Bay Hospital District condemned the Prospect Avenue property with the explicit finding that an emergency hospital for the use of the three beach cities that formed the district was a public need and necessity, Following the failure of South Bay Hospital in 1984, that land should have been surplus, absent the cited cause for condemnation. The Beach Cities Health District now proposes to put a commercial, market priced RCFE (Residential Care Facility for the Elderly) on the site, competing with current, actively under construction and future private ventures. The RCFE has no finding of public need and necessity. The same is true for the entirely duplicative PACE facility (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) that duplicates services offered to all zip codes by another California registered facility, thereby wasting public resources.
