Seniors Seek Alternative to Hospital TCU

Resting on a hill across from the soon-to-open Stagecoach Plaza in Newhall sits the only facility in the Santa Clarita Valley that will be available to seniors in need once Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's transitional care unit closes.  

While the history of Santa Clarita Convalescent has been fraught with difficulty, the facility's new owner, Steve Pavlow, said it is fully capable of absorbing the influx of patients who will have nowhere else to go when Henry Mayo's TCU closes its doors. While the hospital maintains that the TCU will not close before the end of 2007, CEO Roger Seaver intends to recommend to the board that the unit's beds eventually be converted to acute care status.
