BRAWLEY — Following a vote by the Pioneers Memorial Hospital District board Monday night to terminate its management contract with Brim Healthcare Inc., board members said yesterday Brim has 90 days until the contract officially terminates.
"At this time, Brim has said they will work with us for the entire three months," said board President Marcus Tapia.
Chief Executive Officer Richard Mendoza and Chief Financial Officer Dan Heckathorne have both agreed to continue to work for the hospital until July, when Brim's contract officially terminates, said Tapia.
Mendoza and Heckathorne are Brim employees.
With the loss of Brim, Tapia said the district will have to hire consultant services to help the district through the accreditation it will undergo next March.
