SVMH to form advisory committee
The Californian - Salinas

The Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital is forming an advisory committee as the hospital moves forward under the national Affordable Care Act and after the hospital board of directors’ recent decision to stay a standalone facility and not affiliate with another healthcare operation.

“The purpose of the advisory committee is to recommend specific actions SVMHS should take to ensure it has a sustainable and viable future as a standalone,” says the draft plan, presented at Thursday’s board of directors meeting by president Jim Gattis.
