Community input at Southern Inyo Hospital meeting
Sierra Wave

Tuesday evening’s meeting at Lone Pine’s Statham Hall was billed as a workshop to garner community input on Southern Inyo Hospital’s future. Hit with serious cash flow issues, SIH is one- to two-and-a-half weeks behind on payroll and looking at closure if it can’t come up with $13,000 to pay its license fee in two days. Close to 100 community members provided a lot of input as well as an impromptu fund-raising effort to cover the license.
