An overwhelming majority of Marin Healthcare District voters Tuesday gave the green light to Marin General Hospital’s two-tier management structure by approving Measure R.

“What it means is that the path that we began on June 30, 2010 is going to continue,” said Jon Friedenberg, Marin General’s chief administrative officer. Measure R asked voters’ approval to lease publicly-owned Marin General for 30 years to the Marin General Hospital Corp.; the private nonprofit was created in 2010 when Sutter Health returned control of the hospital to the Marin Health Healthcare district, before its 30-year lease was due to expire in 2015.
