Natividad files letter of intent to merge with SVMH
Monterey Herald

A special affiliation steering committee for Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital has received copies of Natividad Medical Center’s letter of intent to merge with the public district hospital.

But there are still no plans to deliver the merger proposal to Salinas Valley’s board of directors more than a week after Natividad submitted the letter of intent by the July 2 deadline. There are just two weeks to go before the board is scheduled to decide whether to accept the county-owned hospital’s proposal and begin negotiations.
