A Tri-City Healthcare District bond proposition was on the August 26, 2008 ballot for voters in the Tri-City Healthcare District in San Diego County, where it was defeated.

If the measure had been approved, it would have authorized the district to borrow $589 million. This would have been used to support the Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside.[1]

The funds would have gone to:

  • Expanding and renovating the Emergency Department.
  • Modernizing the intensive care unit.
  • Expanding urgent care service facilities.
  • Renovating to accommodate advanced medical technology.
  • Upgrading core infrastructure (plumbing, electrical, lighting, heating and ventilation)
  • Meeting state requirements for earthquake safety.

Voters in the district rejected similar requests in June and November of 2006.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
