KVPR and 1A Remaking America Present: What Happens When Your Hospital Closes
More than 130 rural hospitals have closed around the country since 2010. Here in California's Central Valley, Madera Community Hospital has been added to the list.
What does it mean for a community to become a health care desert? And who do we call in an emergency?
Join KVPR and Jenn White, host of NPR's 1A, for a live conversation. The event will be recorded for potential later use in a national broadcast of 1A.
Panelists will include:
Sen. Anna Caballero, Democratic State Senator, Merced, Calif.
Dr. Simon Paul, Public Health Officer, Madera County Department of Public Health
Karen Paolinelli, CEO, Madera Community Hospital
