What about electing a District (that is taxpayer) director who vowsNEVERr serve on the non-profit? It is not clear that the public taxpayers have been best served by co-mingling of the responsibilities. The District is not an 'operating board' and it really does not need an MD or a world famous specialist in large health-care operations. It does need someone dedicated to clean - open government. [or else disband the government portion of this]

As to the comment about " quality service ":
My fondest memories of the last treatment at El Camino Hospital; a really bad case of C Dif that took 3 weeks to get rid of. The CO doctors had me treat myself because no one wanted it to spread ( vector ) into Colorado. Look up C Dif. It's not pretty.
I suggest Mr. Alles " misspoke ". There are many problems at El Camino Hospital that have been deliberately hidden. I experience several others during my " visit ".
