According to the Chronicle, PPGG treats 50,000 patients per year, 92 percent of whom live below federal poverty lines. Last year, the clinic gave away almost $1 million in free health care. But a bad economy and problems with management have led to a drop in donations, while the state budget crisis and dramatic cuts in Medi-Cal reimbursements have also reduced revenue. These problems were exacerbated by the cost of providing care to so many low-income patients in urgent need of care.
According to a source from Planned Parenthood Federation the management of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (San Jose) and Planned Parenthood Shasta-Diablo will open new, affiliated clinics in the areas served by PPGG to ensure continuous delivery of high-quality services.
