We have made great progress in preparing our application to CDPH and securing initial funding, which will be needed to reopen Tulare Regional Medical Center. We are also working through the regulations that require approval through the bankruptcy Chapter 9 filing and the bond trustees.

There’s renewed interest from the physician community and we are meeting with numerous physicians who are expressing interest in remaining or coming back to the area now that the District has taken over the hospital. In addition, we have great interest from both former employees and new applicants who want to work at the hospital.
