There's good news about the new Hospital
Kiwanis Club of Tehachapi
Christina Scrivner is excited about the partnership Tehachapi has developed with Adventist Health as the new hospital nears completion. She spoke at a Kiwanis meeting about her participation with Adventist Health as she works to develop a foundation which will raise funds to outfit departments in the new hospital that are not available in the current facility. The first goal will be to purchase equipment for the operating rooms.
She praised the work the Hospital Guild has done for the many years as they raised money to buy equipment for the hospital. Within the last year they have given the radiology and respiratory departments advanced equipment. This will be needed along with other donated items and will be moved to the new facility when it is completed. The Guild will continue its mission of supporting the hospital and health care in Tehachapi.
A new hospital has been in the planning stage for many years and an opening date delayed several times. However, Scrivner stressed that Adventist Health will open the new structure as soon as everything is just right. She expects the opening will be soon after the first of the year, and there will be much celebration and fanfare.
Scrivner's talk was accompanied by a video showing many features of the new hospital. She said, "I am so humbled to take-up this important charge and believe we can realize a level of healthcare in Tehachapi that is truly worthy of our amazing community."
