New Tenet Lease, Possible Purchase Of Desert Regional Medical Center Taking Shape

It is not set in stone yet, but right now the Desert Healthcare District Board of Directors likes the idea of a new 30 year lease and possible purchase of Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs.

The current lease agreement is with Tenet Healthcare.

The proposal approved unanimously in late May 2024 by the Board also involves Tenet, which plans to spend 60 million dollars upgrading and expanding JFK Hospital in Indio,  and the proposed future lease deal with Desert Regional could amount to 650 million dollars over 30 years, starting in 2027.
