San Francisco, CA 94102-7004

Dear Deputy Attorney General Chan,

I am expressing my support of the transaction to sell Daughters of Charity Health System (DCHS) in Prime Health Care Services and Prime Healthcare Foundation (Prime Healthcare).

Although there's been a lot of competing voices for and against this sale, only imagine what would happen to our communities without any safety net hospitals at all.  Please keep this hospital open. When hospitals die, so could people.

I am a community member who supports this transaction for Seton Medical Center/Seton Coastside.
