Improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve
As your healthcare District, the Board of Directors and Staff endeavor to be transparent in managing the public resources entrusted to us and to facilitate an open partnership with our constituents. This website is dedicated to facilitating communication with those we serve and providing a transparent documentation of the healthcare District's business to the fullest extent possible. We strive to keep the information on this site current and up to date. Inquiries regarding the information provided, or about actions taken by the Board of Directors may be communicated by:
In 2015, the District leased the medical center to Tenet Healthcare in a bid to preserve the medical center and continue hospital services in the Morongo Basin. Now separated from the medical center, the healthcare District has shifted its focus to a broader agenda – improving access to healthcare and promoting wellness in the community.
Let me update you on some of the exciting things that your publically elected board members have initiated on your behalf.
The healthcare District’s Board of Directors meet twice a month to conduct District business (typically the first and third Thursday of each month). We have been elected by you to represent and protect the assets of your healthcare District. The meetings are open to everyone and I encourage you to attend these business meetings, voice your opinion and give us feedback. We post our meeting agendas on this website for your review. Minutes of our meetings are also posted here for your information.
Your Board of Directors are available to speak at meetings of local community organizations to provide information about the District and how we are fulfilling our mission to improve the health and wellness of the communities we serve. Call our Board Clerk, Karen Graley at 760/820-3027, to coordinate a convenient date. I, too, am always available to our community, 760/799-3113.
Thank you for your continued support to the Morongo Basin Healthcare District. We look forward to partnering with you for a healthy Morongo Basin.
President of the Board
