Tar­rant County Hospi­tal Dis­trict Propo­si­tion A

The is­suance of $800,000,000 by Tar­rant County on be­half of the Tar­rant County Hospi­tal Dis­trict for the pur­pose of ac­quir­ing, con­struct­ing, im­prov­ing, equip­ping or en­larg­ing fa­cil­i­ties of the hospi­tal sys­tem needed to meet the de­mands of the pub­lic busi­ness of the county, in­clud­ing, but not lim­ited to, a new men­tal health and be­hav­ioral health hospi­tal, a new main hospi­tal tower for gen­eral and spe­cial­ized pa­tient care-physi­cian nurse train­ing- and Level One Trauma Care, a new can­cer cen­ter, four new re­gional health cen­ters, and a new am­bu­la­tory sur­gi­cal cen­ter.

It’s been 33 Years since the Hospi­tal Dis­trict held its last bond elec­tion

Since that time, Tar­rant County has grown by over 1 mil­lion res­i­dents. Also, over the past three decades, the Hospi­tal Dis­trict’s John Peter Smith Health Sys­tem has ex­pe­ri­enced a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in coun­ty­wide de­mands for its ser­vices (es­pe­cially in the area of men­tal and be­hav­ioral health); and has in­curred sig­nif­i­cant costs with its com­mit­ment to en­sure avail­abil­ity of tech­no­log­i­cal and med­i­cal in­no­va­tions for its pa­tient care. To re­spon­si­bly en­sure we have proper med­i­cal care when we need it, the Fort Worth Cham­ber and other Cham­bers across Tar­rant County have formed “Our Com­mu­nity Our Health” to cam­paign FOR the pas­sage of this crit­i­cal bond.
