Central Health wants to hear from you

Thursday, December 1, 2016 by Caleb Pritchard

Central Health is holding a public hearing to gather input and ideas for an upcoming self-checkup. Facing pressure from activists who have claimed that the hospital district acts with little transparency, outgoing President Patricia Young Brown in October agreed to hire an outside consultant to review Central Health’s planning, budgeting and organizational performance. The hearing is aimed at gathering feedback for thoughts on how the review should proceed. “Public input is vital to the overall success of the performance review, which will help guide the essential work Central Health performs,” said Katrina Daniel, chair of the Central Health board of managers, in a press release. The hearing starts at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and will be held at the district’s headquarters at 1111 E. Cesar Chavez St. If you can’t make it, you can participate in an online survey between Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 at the health district’s website.
