Adventist to take over shuttered California hospital

Shuttered Madera (Calif.) Community Hospital reached an initial agreement to have Roseville, Calif.-based Adventist Health take over operations.

The deal comes after a bankruptcy judge gave the hospital until Aug. 4 to continue its spending plan and search for a buyer or face liquidation from its creditors. The hospital — which has been closed since the start of 2023 — also applied for an $80 million loan from the newly created Distressed Hospital Loan Program.

Financial advisors told county officials that it could take six to nine months for Madera to reopen once it finds a buyer.

"California hospitals face many financial challenges, and for independent rural hospitals, these challenges can sometimes be almost insurmountable," Adventist President and CEO Kerry Heinrich said in a July 28 Adventist news release provided to Becker's. "If Madera succeeds in getting the financial resources it needs, Adventist Health will provide Madera Community Hospital with the expertise of a large healthcare system, helping to secure a sustainable future for healthcare in Madera County."
