Tehachapi residents elated over passage of Measure H for new hospital

A measure to affiliate Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District with Adventist Health was easily approved by the voters with 89.2 percent voting yes. Under Measure H, Adventist Health will kick in $27 million to help complete construction of a new 25-bed hospital.

“This will allow us to have a brand new facility at no extra cost to the citizens of Tehachapi,” said Duane Moats, board member of the Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District. “The TVHD will continue to own the land, the buildings and everything. We are going to lease that to Adventist Health which will operate the hospital.”
