CALEXICO — At their meeting Wednesday, the trustees of the Heffernan Memorial Hospital District will be reviewing proposals by at least three potential tenants that want to provide medical services in the Calexico Hospital building, closed since late 1997.
The tenant they select could receive $200,000 from the district as a subsidy toward the first year's operating budget, according to Henry Legaspi, administrative assistant to the district board.
The trustees will meet at 5 p.m. in Calexico Hospital.
The first possible tenant, "Tenant A," is interested in opening an urgent-care facility in a part of the building, Legaspi wrote in a memorandum that will be presented to the trustees.
"Tenant A has certification to operate radiology equipment; therefore could/would operate x-ray. (Tenant A) also has certification to operate blood lab but does not believe this would be cost-effective initially," Legaspi wrote.
