Nez vetoes Sage’s tribal contract

As of last Wednesday, Sage Memorial Hospital is no longer operating as an Indian Health Service provider. President Jonathan Nez vetoed an emergency resolution from the Navajo Nation Council to renew the hospital’s contract with the tribe for the next 20 years, citing “questionable spending practices, lack of due diligence and other important concerns.” Nez also said in a press release he felt the resolution was rushed through “without consideration and support from the appropriate standing committees.”
