Hospital-contract bill advances
The Californian - Salinas

After it became apparent that Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital had no written contract with its former chief executive officer, Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Salinas, introduced a bill requiring health care districts to have such agreements.

AB 2115 recently passed out of the Assembly Committee on Local Government, Alejo’s office said. The lack of written contract between the hospital and its former CEO Sam Downing was highlighted in a SVMH audit by the state auditor.
