Politicians state their displeasure with decision

SACRAMENTO — Senator Anna M. Caballero (D-Merced), Assemblywoman Esmeralda Soria (D-Fresno) and Assemblymember Dr. Joaquin Arambula (D-Fresno) released a statement following the ruling made in bankruptcy court Tuesday about American Advanced Medicine getting selected to reopen Madera Community Hospital instead of the UCSF/Adventist Health group.  

“The federal judge’s decision regarding Madera Community Hospital’s bankruptcy proceedings is disappointing. We hoped that the court would have granted UCSF, Adventist Health, and Madera County the opportunity to move forward and provide a full presentation of their joint venture to purchase and reopen Madera Community Hospital — to show what it could mean immediately for the residents and the long-term viability of this hospital for the region. In our view, it would have shown their commitment to reopen Madera Community Hospital quickly.

“Today’s ruling, however, was only one step in the process. A turnaround plan and an overall proposal — plus a commitment to new management for the hospital — still needs approval from the California Department of Health Care and Information, the California Department of Public Health, and the Office of the Attorney General.
