Health district tables hiring consultant
Del Norte Triplicate

A proposal to spend as much as $80,000 to hire a consultant was tabled Thursday because the Del Norte Healthcare District failed to give proper public notice.

The healthcare district board met in special session to consider hiring Quorum Health Resources. The plan, according to a majority of board members, is to find an alternative to replace Sutter Health and Sutter Coast Hospital.

Quorum was proposing a consulting fee of between $50,000 and $80,000.
