Much to the chagrin of many people in attendance at its special board meeting July 28, the Fallbrook Regional Health District (FRHD) board unanimously (a 5-0 vote) passed a resolution ratifying the sale of the Fallbrook Hospital building to mental health provider Crestwood Behavioral Health, Inc. for $4.5 million.

The special session held in the board room at the Fallbrook Public Utility District attracted a standing-room only crowd and lasted nearly 3 1/2 hours. The meeting began with public comments and 31 members of the community went to the podium to express their views.
