SC CTV granted extension 06/26/12 7p.m. TDH

Santa cruz county supervisors have given a 7-week extension to the non-profit operator of santa cruz community television, (known as C-T-V).  C-T-V is facing significant funding shortages, and supervisors want  C-T-V’s 300-voting members to restructure the operation.  However, following an unsuccessful vote by members to do so, santa cruz county supervisor john Leopold sought to move forward with exploring other options, including merging with another entity to provide limited community programs.   Leopold agreed to the extension yesterday, in part, so that C-T-V can find a new executive director.  If no change is made, supervisors could start looking at other options as soon as august 14th.

 

ACA won’t pursue SVMH 06/26/12 5p.m. TDH

the number of potential merger-partners for salinas valley memorial hospital has been further reduced…to just 1.   officials with privately-owned H-C-A Healthcare have announced that they are pulling out of consideration, and will not file a final proposal.   That leaves natividad medical center as the only option for salinas valley memorial hospital.  The deal would likely involve a merger, rather than a total acquisition of the hospital.   A final proposal is due on Monday.  Hospital officials could still decide to remain independent.  A decision could be made at the board’s meeting on july 26th .
