Bakersfield Californian

Kern County Supervisors took a major step Tuesday on the road to transferring Kern Medical Center to a Kern County Hospital Authority.

They voted to approve the ordinance that will create the hospital authority.

“This is the culmination of a great deal of effort,” said Kern Medical Center CEO Russell Judd. “We’ve circled to the right. We’ve circled to the left. We’ve do-si-doed. And now we’re here.”
