San Francisco’s only independent hospital is getting a boost from the state to improve the Bay Area’s access to care for patients who require special medical equipment, supplies and treatment.

Assemblyman Phil Ting who will reach his term limit later this year, announced Friday that $5 million had been allocated from the 2023-24 state budget to Chinese Hospital to construct a 23-bed subacute-care unit.

People needing subacute care typically suffer from illnesses, injuries or diseases that don’t require hospitalization. However, they still require around-the-clock care and supervision from a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and health-care experts. Their needs can include feeding tubes or ventilators.
