Hospital may move ahead
In a letter to officials in Ventura County, federal prison health-care receiver J. Clark Kelso informed them he has decided to proceed with an environmental impact review to build a 1,500-bed adult prison hospital in Camarillo.
Kelso said he will file a notice within four weeks that will start the environmental review process, which will include public hearings. The notice would be filed about Nov. 1. Kelso’s letter was faxed to the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, the Camarillo City Council and other elected officials.
