The Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District is preparing for construction of a planned community resource center with excavation of the site on D Street in downtown Tehachapi where Tehachapi Valley Hospital was located for about 60 years.

The district razed the old structure last year. A new hospital leased and operated by Adventist Health opened in November 2018, and after considering other options, health care district directors abandoned plans for renovation in favor of new construction.
