Morongo Band awards $330K grant to help hospital

The Morongo Band of Mission Indians awarded a $330,000 grant to help a local hospital build a helicopter landing pad.

The tribe gave the money to the San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital. The hospital needs a permanent landing pad so it doesn't have to keep shutting down a local street to land and transport patients for critical care.

The grant is part of the tribe's gaming revenue fund. The tribe has given out more than $3 million to local communities.
