Yes on Proposition 4

Vote Yes on Proposition 4: Funds Critical Care at Children’s Hospitals.

Proposition 4 authorizes $1.5 billion in general obligation bonds, to be repaid from state’s General Fund, to fund grants for construction, expansion, renovation, and equipping of qualifying children’s hospitals.

California children’s hospitals provide critical care to children with significant medical needs and it is not possible to set aside money for infrastructure with the current payer mix. Previous bonds enabled the hospitals to build new patient towers that meet 2030 seismic standards and buy new equipment, including medical records systems and new medical technology. Proposition 4 will help the 13 regional children’s hospitals meet growing demand for services and update technology.
