hospital on the hill
The Forde Files No 110
The Tehachapi Replacement Critical Access Hospital (circled), wrapped by the hills of the Loop Ranch, already stands like a beacon of light above Hwy. 58, the freight train tracks and the city. Construction is moving smoothly toward opening in 2016. The U.S. Post Office on right of the hospital looks attached in this long lens photo taken facing north from across the valley, almost at Highline Road. The white water tank to the right is on the Loop Ranch; the dun-colored water tank to the left of the building belongs to the hospital. The proposed alignment for the California High Speed Rail track would run just north of the hospital, through tunnels, on grade and on elevations.
