The board of directors of Delta County Memorial Hospital has elected to opt out of Proposition 106, approved by the state's voters in November 2016. The proposition allows physicians to prescribe medical aid-in-dying medication to terminally ill individuals under certain conditions. Participation is voluntary -- physicians and pharmacists are not obligated to prescribe or dispense the medication. The hospital board has decided to opt out at this time but will revisit the topic in six months, Jason Cleckler, hospital CEO, said.
