Results show a big ‘yes’ for Measure H in Tehachapi
Bakersfield Californian

It looks like Tehachapi will have a new, completed hospital.

With all precincts reporting Wednesday morning, Measure H passed with almost 90 percent approval. The measure only needs a 50 percent majority plus one to be approved.

The results showed Measure H receiving 5,521 “yes,” votes, or 89.02 percent, with just 681 “no” votes for 10.98 percent.

The “yes” vote on Measure H allows the Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District to enter into an affiliation with Adventist Health to help complete construction of the new hospital in the Capital Hills area, near the post office.
