Washington Township Hospital Development Corporation is a public benefit
(non profit) California Corporation which is affiliated with the District.
A five member Board of Directors governs the Washington Township Hospital
Development Corporation (DEVCO). Its current directors are: Benn Sah,
M.D., chair; Shirley Bushke, secretary; James Stone, treasurer; Russ Blowers,
board member; and Miro Garcia, board member.
DEVCO was incorporated in 1982 in response to pending California legislation
that provided the authority for District Hospitals to transact business
for the benefit of the District through affiliated nonprofit corporations.
This structure created a level playing field so that hospital districts
could enter into relationships similar to other hospitals. More than 20
years later, the reasoning behind the formation of DEVCO remains of paramount
DEVCO meets on a quarterly basis. The meetings are held at Washington Hospital,
2000 Mowry Ave., in the Executive Boardroom which is located in the administrative
offices on the first floor of the Hospital.
