Marin General Hospital to put $394 million bond on Nov. 5 ballot to rebuild
San Francisco Business Times

The Marin Healthcare District’s board of directors, which runs Marin General Hospital, has voted to put a $394 million bond issue on the Nov. 5 ballot to fund the rebuilding of the Greenbrae hospital. The funds would pay for most of the cost of the estimated $500 million project, required for seismic reasons and to update and modernize the aging facility. The bond issue could be controversial because of its size, the tenuous nature of the economic recovery, and the fact that many Marin County residents are Kaiser Permanente enrollees who use Kaiser facilities or cross the Golden Gate Bridge to seek care in San Francisco.
