BRAWLEY — The management future of the Pioneers Memorial Hospital District here remains unclear following a meeting of the district's Board of Directors Tuesday night.
Talk of having new Chief Executive Officer Richard Mendoza continue in his position surfaced before Tuesday's meeting and was expected to be discussed.
The board also was expected to discuss the hospital's future with Brim Healthcare Inc. and Brim possibly providing consultant services.
Board President Marcus Tapia said Tuesday night that "personnel issues" were discussed during closed session but he wouldn't reveal specifically what was discussed or what plans the district has for a search for a new CEO and chief financial officer.
Last month the board voted to end its contract with Brim and have the hospital manage itself.
Board members Daniel Paramo, Katy Santillan and Tapia voted to end the contract while Leo Haggarty and Aleta Shropshire voted to continue Brim's services.
