The hospital has been shuttered for nearly a year after the hospital declared bankruptcy on October 26, 2017.

Under the agreement, the Adventist Health will pay the Tulare Local Healthcare District $2.335 million each year to lease the hospital building. Adventist has also agreed to give the district a $10 million loan which will be used to pay off debts needed to reopen the hospital.

Adventist has also spent $200,000 over the last few weeks to renovate the hospital.
