Okanogan Douglas Hospital Meeting 3/25/2011
A special Okanogan Douglas Hospital Board Meeting was recently held for the express purpose of discussing a reduction in force. Included in that discussion was the possible closure of the Mansfield Clinic. New board Member Vicki Orford said it’s time to pull the plug: "CLICK HERE" for Audio

Other departments that were included in the discussion for the reduction plan were Quorum,   the hospital’s management support company; Durable Medical Equipment; Healthbeat Fitness Center; and I T services. 

The board is expected to make a decision on the plan during their next meeting, Monday at noon at Okanogan Douglas Hospital.
