Tahoe Daily Tribune

Barton Memorial Hospital plans to move forward with $18 million of debt-financed capital improvement upgrades.

About $14.4 million will pay for a new central utility plant at the community hospital in South Lake Tahoe. The existing utility plant is about 50 years old and obsolete, hospital officials said.

The hospital proposes to build the utility plant between the existing utility plant and the Freel Peak building at the back of the hospital.
