BACKGROUND:
San Mateo County is responsible for providing necessary medical care to its medically indigent population. Since 2008, Dr. Selner has provided podiatry services for San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC). SMMC's patient population has a high demand for podiatry services, which treats foot and lower leg injuries as well as ongoing health issues like diabetes that can affect lower extremities.

DISCUSSION:
Under this amendment, Dr. Selner has agreed to increase her clinical commitment from a 0.14 FTE to a 0.34 FTE; Dr. Selner will be providing services at a minimum of 168 podiatry clinics, seeing at least 12 patients per clinic, compared to 72 clinics previously. Dr. Selner's clinical commitment is increasing due to the high demand of podiatry services and the upcoming retirement of another podiatrist at SMMC.

County Administrative Memorandum B-1 provides that contracts for physicians are exempt from the Request for Proposals process.

The amendment and resolution have been reviewed and approved by the County Attorney as to form.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

It is anticipated that Dr. Selner will review incoming referrals within one business day for urgent cases and three business days for routine cases, 100% of the time.
