Northern Arizona Healthcare is going back to the drawing board after Proposition 480 failed at the ballot box last week. As of Monday, the “No on 480” campaign was ahead 72-percent to 28-percent, or nearly 12-thousand “no” votes to just over 45-hundred “yes” votes. Dave Cheney, CEO of NAH tells KAFF News they are still committed on bringing a new hospital to the area, it just won’t be at the spot they planned on, just north of Fort Tuthill. He says, “we are looking for where this new hospital is going to be and there’s still a lot of work to do, but it’s definitely not dead in the water.” Cheney adds, “we just have to find a different solution than we had a month ago.” He also says they are looking at every option, both in the City of Flagstaff and outside the city limits. Cheney says they are going to sit down and come up with ways not only to communicate better with the community, but to connect with residents. He says they will be a better company having learned lessons from what the community told them at the ballot box.
