n-hospital care has been very expensive and more and more patients who are in need have to be pushed out of the hospitals. Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) announced $5 million state fund has been allocated to the Chinese Hospital to support the building of a subacute care unit within the facility.
Ting, who is also the Assembly Budget Committee Chair, made the announcement at the annual golf tournament fundraising event at the Olympic Club on October 3. The $5 million fund was included in the state budget for the first time and secured by Ting.
Subacute Care is in urgent need in San Francisco. According to the Chinese Hospital, subacute care provides a high level of care on an inpatient basis for patients post acute illness, injury or disease or complex health problems, and consists of a range of special services and supports, such as post-surgical care and rehabilitation.
