"WEALTHY" LIVING CAMPUS MAY 2022 FAQS

You probably got SPAM from BCHD. Here's a view from the Public of the softball PR questions BCHD wrote for itself using $1M annual comm budget and a $10K/month out of town PR consultant.



WEALTHY LIVING CAMPUS FACTS FOR MAY 2022

BCHD PR QUESTION: How will allcove Beach Cities meet the mental health needs of the Community?

BCHD PR ANSWER: SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, PR, PR, PR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC – Why is BCHD setting up a program for 1.4 MILLION people using the taxes/facilities of 120,000 residents of Hermosa/Manhattan/ Redondo?

PUBLIC VIEW: BCHD HAS EXCESSIVE MISSION CREEP – Providing mental health services to youth and young adults of the Beach Cities is very worthy. However, “allcove” by BCHD will serve 91% NON-RESIDENTS of the Beach Cities that OWN and FUND BCHD. When the grants run out – WE pay the bills because BCHDs collective EGO won’t shut down the program. Just like the FAILED South Bay Hospital District wasn’t terminated. BCHD is building permanent space for “allcove” on our public owned and zoned land. Why should the 120,000 residents of the Beach Cities Taxes or assets fund 1.4 MILLION? WE SHOULD NOT!

BCHD PR QUESTION: How will the PACE facility serve residents?

BCHD PR ANSWER: SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, PR, PR, PR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC – BCHD is setting up a PACE facility for 400 participants – Why will only 17 be RESIDENTS of the Beach Cities?

PUBLIC VIEW – 96% of PACE participants will be NON-RESIDENTS driven to the PACE facility each day based on statistics from the National PACE Association. That’s more traffic, emissions, toxics, and cancer for the RESIDENTS and SCHOOL CHILDREN. Only 1 in every 1,000 seniors uses PACE. In Hermosa/Manhattan/Redondo there are 17,000 seniors, so that only 17 RESIDENTS will typically enroll in PACE. The other 383 BCHD PACE slots will be FOR SALE by BCHD and the participants will be bussed/trucked/Ubered/ shuttled into Redondo Beach leaving a trail of pollution and rush hour traffic.

BCHD PR QUESTION: What services are available to residents from outside the Beach Cities? Will non-residents be able to use the Residential Care for the Elderly at the Healthy Living Campus?

BCHD PR ANSWER: SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, PR, PR, PR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC – Why is BCHD allowing a commercial “developer/owner/operator (D/O/O)” to build a Wealthy Living Campus for 80%-96% NON-RESIDENTS on our Publicly OWNED and ZONED land?

PUBLIC VIEW - 80% of the $12,500/month assisted living will be for NON-RESIDENTS according to BCHDs consultant, MDS in Exhibit 3-3. BCHD cannot state “while BCHDs focus is on residents” and build a facility that is CLEARLY FOCUSED on 80%+ NON-RESIDENTS. That doesn’t pass a FACT CHECK. BCHD is leasing our Publicly Owned and Zoned property to a commercial developer as a money grab while the public loses use OF ITS LAND for the next 50-100 years.

BCHD tested 84% NON-RESIDENTS for Covid and claimed that FEMA made them do it. But FEMA did NOT make Pasadena, Ventura, Inglewood, Long Beach or a host of other cities operate on NON-RESIDENTS. LA County Health had the obligation to test and vaccinate LA County Residents, NOT BCHD. Was it just a PR move? For more info: https://www.stopbchd.com/post/bchd-assisted-living-for-80-non-residents

BCHD PR QUESTION: Why did the State of California change the name of “hospital districts” to “health care districts?

BCHD PR ANSWER: SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, PR, PR, PR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC – Why did South Bay Hospital only last 24 years before it shut down? Torrance Memorial and Little Company did GREAT during the same time period that South Bay Hospital was failing.

PUBLIC VIEW – The Daily Breeze wrote that South Bay Hospital fail financially because it couldn’t compete with real hospitals. Turns out the public sector couldn’t own and manage a hospital. The Daily Breeze stated “[f]acing increasing competition … the publicly owned South Bay Hospital began to … falter financially in the late 1970s. Layoffs became increasingly common. By 1984, the 203-bed hospital was forced to give up its publicly owned status.” Simple answer, PUBLIC HOSPITALS FAILED – AND GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES NEVER GO AWAY – SO THEY WERE RENAMED SOMETHING THEY COULDN’T FAIL AT. NO ONE EVER HEARD OF A “HEALTH DISTRICT”.

Q: Why did BCHD shift from operating a hospital to a focus on preventive health in the late 1990’s? (THE HOSPITAL FAILED PER THE DAILY BREEZE – BCHD KEPT THE MONEY?)

BCHD PR ANSWER: SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, PR, PR, PR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC – Why wasn’t South Bay Hospital District shut down when it failed in 1984 or when the ER shut down in 1998?

PUBLIC VIEW – Why would a ballot measure to form a hospital district not contain a clause to FOLD IT UP if it failed? Oversight? In 1993, when it because clear even renting the building to a real hospital was going to end, South Bay Hospital District renamed itself Beach Cities Health District. BCHD kept the $4M+ a year in property taxes, kept the land we condemned for a hospital, kept our buildings and our cash on hand and gave up the hospital business – the ONLY ACTIVITY voters ever approved.
