Council unanimously approves $130,000 contribution to help purchase Watsonville Community Hospital


Watsonville City Council members unanimously approved contributing $130,000 of the General Fund to help the Pajaro Valley Healthcare District Project (PVHDP) purchase the Watsonville Community Hospital. 

The hospital recently filed for bankruptcy and the plan is for the healthcare district to submit a bid that would allow them to purchase and oversee the hospital. The courts are scheduled to open the bidding process on February 17. 

The PVHDP is made up of Santa Cruz County, the City of Watsonville, the Community Health Trust of Pajaro Valley, and Salud para la Gente. Our top goal is to make sure the Watsonville Community Hospital stays open and continues to serve our community. 


Miembros del Concilio de la Ciudad aprobaron por unanimidad la contribución de $130. 000 del Fondo General para ayudar al Proyecto del Distrito de Salud del Valle de Pájaro (PVHDP por sus siglas en inglés) a comprar el Hospital Comunitario de Watsonville.

El hospital se declaró en bancarrota recientemente y el plan es que el distrito de salud presente una oferta que les permita comprar y supervisar el hospital. Se espera que los tribunales abran el proceso de licitación el 17 de febrero.

El PVHDP está compuesto por el Condado de Santa Cruz, la Ciudad de Watsonville, Community Health Trust of Pajaro Valley y Salud para la Gente. Nuestro principal objetivo es asegurarnos de que el Hospital Comunitario de Watsonville permanezca abierto y continúe atendiendo a nuestra comunidad.
