Voters approve $350 million bond for public health and safety efforts
San Francisco Examiner

San Francisco voters appear to have approved a $350 million bond to upgrade the San Francisco General Hospital campus, improve homeless facilities and create a new ambulance deployment facility.

Prop. A, which required two-thirds approval to pass, received 78.6 percent of the votes.

The largest portion of the Public Health and Safety bond will continue the seismic upgrades of the Department of Public Health’s campus around the new San Francisco General Hospital. Some $222 million will go toward upgrading a 1970’s-era facility housing urgent care and The City’s only psychiatric emergency services.
