County Rejects Plan to Save Inpatient Services

June 04, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

County supervisors rejected a plan Tuesday that sought to save inpatient services at the county-run High Desert Hospital by leasing it to a private company.

The county is converting the Lancaster hospital into an ambulatory care clinic to save $10 million a year, part of a larger plan to close a projected $1.1-billion budget shortfall in the county health-care system by the 2007-08 fiscal year.
