A San Gorgonio Memorial Healthcare District parcel tax, Measure D ballot question was on the May 1, 2012 ballot for voters in the San Gorgonio Memorial Healthcare District in Riverside County, where it was approved.[1][2]

The approval of Measure D means that the district's existing $49/year parcel tax will be extended for another 10 years. The original parcel tax was approved in 2001.[3] It expires on June 30, 2012. The tax generates about $1.7 million a year in revenue for the hospital. Revenues from the tax are used to ensure that emergency services are available in the district.[4]

The $49 annual tax will be subject to annual cost-of-living increases.[4]

The San Gorgonio Memorial Healthcare District supports one hospital, which is located in Banning. That hospital is in the process of building a new emergency department and intensive care unit. Construction on those features is expected to conclude in early 2013. The hospital is paying for those construction costs with the proceeds of a $108 million bond (Measure A) that the district's voters approved in 2006.[4]

The election was held on a mail-in-only basis. A two-thirds supermajority vote was needed for approval.
