Sonora, CA — The Camden Group, which is overseeing the operation of Tuolumne General Hospital, will make a 1:30pm appearance at today´s Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors´ meeting.

Camden representatives will discuss non-acute healthcare models for Tuolumne General Hospital.

At a recent meeting of the Board, the Camden group stated that even under the best of circumstances, the hospital could expect to lose between $31-38 million over the next six years if it remained a full-service facility.

Other items on the agenda: County Administrator Craig Pedro will ask the Board to consider authorizing the Lake Don Pedro and New Melones Buffer Zone Protection Plans in the amount of $228,000. Also the Board will be asked to increase appropriations in the Sheriff/Coroner´s budget by the same amount. A four-fifths vote is needed for passage.

There will also be consideration of approving the nomination of Courthourse Square to the National Register of Historic Places in addition to an eleven o´clock hearing to consider adopting a mitigation negative declaration for construction of the Sugar Pine Trail with a direction to staff to proceed with right-of-way acquisition in addition to preparation of final plans.
