Gavin Newsom “for $1 billion in immediate aid to help offset losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.” The group “estimates the state’s more than 400 hospitals have collectively lost more than $10 billion as a result of reduced revenue from surgeries and other procedures and higher labor and supply costs amid the pandemic.”
