Rural health clinics to stay open
The Appeal-Democrat

Whatever happens with Colusa Regional Medical Center, not everything is closing. The Colusa County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to provide up to $100,000 per month to the CRMC or its successor to cover half of the salary and benefit costs to keep the hospital’s three rural health clinics open. The money will come from the contingency fund. The payments will occur over a period of three months and will help ensure some level of health care will continue to be provided in the county — even if there is no deal to sell the hospital in place by Friday’s deadline, after which CRMC’s medical license will be placed in suspension for up to 12 months.
