Fort Bragg hospital files for bankruptcy
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

The Mendocino Coast District Hospital board of directors on Wednesday filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, an effort to save the long-foundering Fort Bragg facility from drowning in debt.

“It is a way of revising our debt structure,” said Sean Hogan, the board president and an attorney.

It also gives the hospital more leverage in labor negotiations with its 320 employees, hospital officials said.
