I have questioned my board about the Sequoia Healthcare District's continued subsidy of Sequoia Hospital, which it no longer owns. This is done through the Sequoia Hospital Foundation. From the District's website, we have, "Sequoia Healthcare District currently has authorized a $2.5 million challenge grant that will match a similar amount raised by the hospital through private philanthropy. These funds will be combined to help build a new Women's Health Center." See: Web Link
Yet, in their 4 page, full color, 11" x 17 campaign mailing passed off as a "Report to the Community", they list only $600,000 in subsidies for 2012. You need a magnifying glass to read it!
