Monterey County officials remain hopeful that Natividad Medical Center and county public health programs will be spared from a $300 million cut in state health care funding for the uninsured included in the budget passed by the state Legislature on Friday.

Harry Weis, chief executive officer of Natividad, said Friday he believed both the county and its Salinas hospital are “in a good position” and have “a very low probability” of losing state funding.
