BACKGROUND:
San Mateo County is responsible for providing necessary medical care to its medically indigent population and access to services to its general population. Dr. Mak has been providing pulmonary and critical care services at San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) since 2007.

Dr. Mak and other pulmonologists currently meet the County's need for this service due to the aging of its patient population and the current COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Dr. Mak serves in the role of Medical Director of Pulmonary. Dr. Mak's current contract expires on July 31, 2022.

Under this amendment, Dr. Mak has agreed to continue to provide pulmonary medical services for an additional two months to allow for additional time to negotiate a new agreement.

As a result, it is now necessary to increase the contract amount by $81,470, to an amount not to exceed $1,081,470, to cover the cost of pulmonary and critical care services during the two-month extension of the contract.
