n 1947, the Peninsula HospitalDistrict was formed and Robert J.Koshland was appointed director. Hisfirst mandate was to develop a new hospitalfor San Mateo County so adequate healthcare would be available to residents of theentire county. The population of San MateoCounty then was approximately 286,000.The present population is more than700,000.One day in the early 1950s, farmer MikeCozzolino paused to rest from his work,leaning his body on the hoe in his hands.He noticed some men were looking over theland on which his field of flowers bloomed.It wasn’t Mike’s property; he only rented itfrom the Mills Estate on a yearly basis as hehad been doing for several years.
