Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The record group consists of 25.5 cubic feet of textual records from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development and related agencies covering the years 1967 to 1990. Memoranda, correspondence, and reports form the bulk of the material and demonstrated the statewide effort at regulating the health care industry. The records contain material from the Health Planning Council, the Advisory Health Council, the Health Facilities Commission, and the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development.
The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) became a state agency in 1979. In 1985 it absorbed the responsibilities of two other state agencies, the Advisory Health Council and the Health Facilities Commission. The five agencies forming this collection helped coordinate California's health planning for the state government. Each agency had evolving areas of interest but all five concerned themselves with reducing public and private health care costs in order to grant wider health care access.
