Visialia Times-Delta

The Tulare Regional Medical Center Board of Directors will again seek local financial support to build the hospital’s expansion tower.

In action taken earlier this week, the board approved seeking to secure a $55 million parcel tax. Those funds will be used to finish construction on the tower.

“It will be up to the voters,” said Sherrie Bell, the hospital’s board chairwoman. “We had no choice. We had no collateral. We couldn’t get a loan. This was the only funding source.”
