Leaders threaten state audit if Tri-City doesn’t provide plan to re-open psychiatric units
San Diego Union-Tribune

A letter sent by two local leaders that demands Tri-City Medical Center come up with a plan to re-open its shuttered psychiatric units or face a possible state audit encountered immediate pushback Monday.

The letter, sent by county Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and state Rep. Tasha Boerner Horvath of Encinitas, asks the Oceanside hospital to detail within the next 30 days precisely how it plans to re-open its sidelined behavioral health units.

“Should you fail to do so, we will pursue legislative action beginning with a request for a state audit of the Tri-City Medical Center,” the letter states.
