Clinic contract back on hold

Who will pay the outstanding costs associated with the Red Bluffs Clinic in Hulett, recently estimated to stand at approximately $1.5 million? This question caused a sticking point during last week’s meeting of the Crook County Medical Services District (CCMSD) Board of Trustees, while the board also heard that their latest offer to lease space in the building has been rejected.

Bill Motley, secretary of the Crook County Medical Foundation (CCMF), presented a letter to the district that stated his board, “has made the unanimous decision not to gift the new Red Bluff Medical Center to CCMSD.”
