Healthcare district suspends hospital phasing plans
Tehachapi News

Healthcare district board members revisited a decision made back in October to phase the new Tehachapi Hospital project in Capital Hills during a March 10 special meeting.

In a 3-0 vote, the Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District Board suspended phased construction. Director Henry Schaeffer abstained, and Director Kim Horowitz resigned prior to the meeting.

Board president Mike Nixon said that if Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District decided to continue building the hospital in phases, it may cause more headaches, especially if the district decided to partner with Adventist Health.
