North County Times

A candidate for the elected Tri-City Healthcare District board of directors has a record that includes turning around a hospital in Orange County — one that was also accused of dumping patients on Skid Row under his leadership.

Wayne Lingenfelter is one of eight people vying for four seats on the board that operates the Tri-City Hospital and offers health care for nearly 500,000 residents in Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista.
