The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians pledged $700,000 to Community Medical Center-Oakhurst to buy mammography and X-ray equipment and upgrade the health center building.
“The Chukchansi tribal people live in the mountains here. It’s a win-win situation for us and for Madera County,” said Dustin Graham, chairman of the tribal council.
Graham said the one-time contribution came out of talks with the Madera County supervisors. The tribe and Madera County worked together through an advisory committee to determine this award.
