Blue Mountain Hospital in John Day.

JOHN DAY — The Blue Mountain Hospital Board of Directors appears to have sidestepped the state’s open meetings law when it appointed two new members to fill open seats on the board.

The first the public heard about recently appointed board members Kristine Tanory and Timothy Unterwegner is when they were sworn in during the board’s Aug. 22 and May 26 meetings, respectively.
