Following a rally on Sunday from people who want to see the Mills Health Center in San Mateo reopen its therapeutic swimming pool, Sutter Health issued a response about the closure, which they described as a “difficult” decision.

“As a not-for-profit organization, Mills-Peninsula Medical Center continually assesses the needs of our community to ensure we deliver the highest quality care in the most affordable setting to best serve our patients,” said a spokesperson for the organization in an email. “As part of that effort, we made the difficult decision to permanently close our Aquatic program.”
