Here's a link to a picture of the Richmond Field Hospital, circa 1942
This Kaiser Field Hospital was built to calm the fears that comprehensive health insurance would not be sustainable for Kaiser employed families under either a Kaiser employee family health plan or a proto-typical Blues plan because of the lack of necessary facilities and providers. Those most afraid appear to have been local independent practitioners wary of the Kaiser employed physician model.
Here's the facility today (no longer in Kaiser hands but part of my "Important Health Law Sites of California" tour):

Might you, at some point in the future, post links to the other places on the “Important Health Law Sites of California Tour” ? (and perhaps add some places in the rest of the US and the world)
Thanks, very much.
