The bottom line is looking better at Lake Chelan Health. While Hospital CEO Aaron Edwards says the finance sheet could look better, Hospital Board Chair Jordana LaPorte says the finances are, in her words, “pretty darn good:”

LaPorte says they still have to be careful, though, because there are some big projects coming up.

On other notes, the hospital board has a new commissioner; Barbara Jensen was sworn in at the start of the most recent board meeting. She fills the seat once held by Mary Signorelli, who resigned early in June. Also, it's important to note that Signorelli has withdrawn her candidacy for reelection to the board seat, so note that when you see your ballot.

Also, the hospital has put the Highland Campus, which used to be the hospital, on the open market. Edwards says they had a flurry of activity once it was listed, and has apparently put a deadline on offers of August 15th. Then there will be a public hearing on August 25th prior to the board's next meeting.
