A plea to help Southern Inyo Hospital

Press release

Southern Inyo Hospital deserves and needs our continued support. Southern Inyo is the only hospital in California to close and then “come back to life”.

The hospital is still on life support and needs TLC from the community it so proudly serves. There are many ways to show you care about maintaining our local healthcare system:

…Use the services offered by the Clinic, Lab, X-ray, Physical Therapy, and the ER

…Drop off magazines, puzzles, games, etc. for the skilled nursing residents

…Volunteer to restart the much needed and valued Auxiliary

…Volunteer to serve as a director of a non-profit hospital foundation

…Attend monthly meetings of the Hospital Board of Directors

…Make a donation to the Activity fund for the Residents of the Skilled Nursing Facility
Dallas Bumpus is currently raising funds for Fourth of July Fireworks

Thank you for taking the time to respond

Call Peggy Whitehair for details and information (760)876-9940

I know most everyone here feels the same way we do. It’s unfortunate, we are not able to approach the board or management, for fear of termination. I blame the ignorance of the self appointed board and community!

The county operates on lies, excuses and fraud. They don’t need donations. They need education. Let’s have some facts not fiction. Sounds like the hospital is in same state as when it was shut down. Begging is not the way to project confidence.
