ABSTRACT

The hearings before the Pepper subcommittee reported in The Journal have made physicians familiar with the problems related to the provision of medical service created when Mr. Henry Kaiser undertook to provide for the employees of his various interests in California, Oregon and Washington. The January issue of California and Western Medicine publishes some information as to the present status of this situation in California. There are about 87,000 employees in the Richmond yards. The plan in operation provides for a 50 cent weekly payroll deduction for the provision of complete medical care and hospitalization to Kaiser employees who are injured or who may be taken ill from nonindustrial causes. The plan now covers 52,000 employees who have consented to the deduction. To these employees are available the facilities of the Maritime Commission's field hospital and six first aid stations, also the services of a staff of some fifty physicians
