The state auditor’s office on Tuesday released results regarding Rehoboth McKinley Christian hospital in Gallup and its management and service contracts dating to 2016.

State officials say the review shows that a contract with hospital management company Healthcare Integrity circumvented the hospital’s code of conduct and conflicts of interest policy.
