A Modoc County Creation of the Last Frontier Healthcare District, Measure Q ballot proposition was on the August 31, 2010 ballot in Modoc County, where it was approved.[1]

The Last Frontier Healthcare District now owns and operates the Modoc Medical Center.

Voters also approved Measure R, a $195/year parcel tax to support the continued operations of the hospital.[2]

Prior to the passage of Measure Q, the Modoc Medical Center was owned and operated by Modoc County, and had been operating at a millions-a-year deficit. That deficit, in turn, was part of the reason that Modoc County's overall budget was running at a $12.5 million annual deficit.[3]

The newly-created hospital district was 400 miles northeast of San Francisco.
