Tuolumne General Hospital Returns To The Spotlight

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — This morning incoming County Administrator Craig Pedro will present a plan that will outline how $1.5 million can be slashed from the operating costs for Tuolumne General Hospital in the coming fiscal year.

In addition, there will be discussion of proposed alternative ballot measures to provide for the operational costs and construction and renonvation costs for T.G.H.

Also under discussion will be the possibility of outsourcing business operations to P.H.N.S., a Dallas, TX based firm. Much of the hospital´s financial shortfall has been attributed to its inability to collect on accounts receivable. TGH will lose in the neighborhood of $9 million this year and is projected to lose $8.3 million next year.

Also on today´s agenda; the much discussed issue of restaurant permits and their cost for outdoor seating in the county.

Today´s board meeting will be audio streamed live on starting promptly at 9AM … brought to you by Blue Mountain Minerals.
