Tom Hayes, chief executive officer of Eastern Plumas Health Care, came to the regular June 15 meeting of the Portola City Council to ask for the city’s help.

Citing a half-million-dollar net loss in February, Hayes said, “We don’t have the reserves to weather the storm.” He went on to explain that while EPHC’s insured patient base has declined, its MediCal patient base has increased.
