In July 2009, the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), in partnership with HSC, published six regional health care market reports resulting from site visits to California communities. The six markets—Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland/San Francisco, Riverside/San Bernardino, Sacramento, and San Diego—reflect a range of economic, demographic, health care delivery, quality, and financing conditions. In December 2009, CHCF published four reports examining specific health system issues illuminated by this six-market study.
