Mirkarimi asking board for $150,000 to help save Lyon-Martin

San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi plans to ask other board members for $150,000 to try to save Lyon-Martin Health Services.

Mirkarimi is introducing a supplemental appropriation to the Department of Public Health at the full Board of Supervisors meeting today (Tuesday, March 29), according to aide Rick Galbreath.

The troubled clinic, which serves women and transgender people regardless of their ability to pay, has been struggling to stay open. In late January, the clinic’s board made the surprise announcement that they were more than $500,000 in debt and would have to close in a matter of days.

Since then, community fundraising efforts have generated about $350,000 in donations and pledges, but the clinic is still looking for hundreds of thousands more to survive for the foreseeable future.
