Bill Would Shrink Garrett County Memorial Hospital Board

March 9th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Delegate Wendell R. Beitzel (R – District 1A) had a hearing on Tuesday for HB 1127, the “Garrett County – Memorial Hospital – Board Membership and Meetings,” a bill requested by the Garrett Memorial Hospital Board. This bill would make small structural changes to the Memorial Hospital Board, reducing the number of members from fifteen to nine. This bill would also reduce the number of required meetings the board has from at least ten annually to at least six annually. This bill was requested by the Garrett Memorial Hospital and is supported by the Garrett County House Delegation, of which Delegate Beitzel is the sole member. The Delegate hopes for a favorable report.
