The Desert Sun

Desert Regional Medical Center is looking to close its skilled nursing facility in the first quarter after operating at a loss for at least a year.

The 34-bed unit on the fourth floor of the Palm Springs hospital currently houses 15 patients and employs 30 full-time and four part-time employees, said Rich Ramhoff, a hospital spokesman.

Desert Regional is the only one of the valley’s three hospitals that offers a skilled nursing facility.
