Sierra Wave

On Friday, Southern Inyo Hospital Administrator Lee Barron reportedly headed to Sacramento to join other hospital officials to try to change Assembly Bill 97 which cuts Medi-Cal reimbursements. For Southern Inyo Hospital’s Skilled Nursing Facility, the bill would make a 46% cut, and Lone Pine officials say the cuts could lead to closure of the nursing facility, the hospital itself and its clinic. Officials urge citizens to immediately send letters to Sacramento.
