Fort Bragg Advocate News

The Mendocino Coast District Hospital Board of Directors’ Finance Committee approved a budget for fiscal year 2020 at its meeting on Tuesday, June 25.

But interim Chief Executive Officer Wayne Allen, the architect of the spending plan, said Tuesday that without major revisions – mostly cuts in spending and possible elimination of hospital services, the budget that will go before hospital directors June 26 “would lead to a bankruptcy filing”.
