Adventist Health, Tehachapi Valley Health Care District strike hospital deal

Adventist Health, the parent company of San Joaquin Community Hospital, said it has an agreement in place with the Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District to complete construction of a hospital and then operate the hospital. The agreement will be put to public vote during the June 7 election, Adventist Health said Thursday.

“We’re excited to be able to ensure Tehachapi gets the hospital it needs, while not requesting any additional funds from tax payers,” Douglas Duffield, SJCH president and CEO, said in a news release.
