I am so happy to learn that the County views the hospital mess more or less like I have been thinking. Buying Los Gates hospital was way beyond the charter of the El Camino Hospital district. The pay structure for the leaders will be coming up for a vote which should cut the money drain. I think we should get rid of the current company and put the people of the district in charge with the hospital serving the charter area and reporting to the people.

If the district is dissolved, what happens to the bonds we approved a few years ago? Do we still have to pay for that? Can we get them to sell the Los Gatos hospital to raise money to pay off the bonds so we don't have a burden on taxpayers?
