Hospital board meets to discuss new hospital, postpones decision

CHELAN - The Lake Chelan Health board of commissioners (formerly Lake Chelan Community Hospital & Clinics), held a Special Board meeting on Friday, Oct. 9 via Zoom, to discuss the new hospital design and budget. After almost two hours of presentations and discussion the board decided to postpone making the decision until their already scheduled Special Board meeting on Monday, Oct. 12, which was called to discuss the performance of a public employee and legal risks of current or proposed action. Following that, the board will consider approval of the new hospital design.
The design proposed at the meeting is 52,442 square feet with eight in-patient and four labor and delivery beds, but that could change.  Physical therapy will be at the new hospital. Cost is $42.7 million. The new hospital was approved by voters in 2017.
