Residents of Visalia have just a few more days to decide if they will approve a bond known as Measure H for Kaweah Delta Hospital to build a new earthquake resistant acute care wing.
State law requires that every hospital to be hardened against earthquakes by 2030. As a result, the hospital is asking for more than $300 million in public bond to help pay for the hospital.
Kaweah is putting up over $200 million for the project, its statutory cap. The bond will be paid back in the form of a property tax increase.
