Amid budget woes, county looks to new future for Kern Medical Center (CA)

KPVR, May 14, 2014
The Kern County Board of Supervisors met Monday to discuss the future of the county's financially troubled Kern Medical Center. The Board met with hospital CEO Russell Judd and an outside consultant to outline new governance guidelines for KMC which is losing around $3 million a month. According to county administrative officer John Nilon, a new budget presented by the hospital's management would require the elimination of 111 positions in other county departments. That would be on top of the five percent cuts other county departments are already facing, which translates to about 107 positions.
