Voters approve $800M Texas hospital district bond

Voters in Tarrant County approved an $800 million hospital district bond for Fort Worth, Texas-based JPS Health Network. The bond will support various expansion and facility improvement efforts across the district, according to NBC-Dallas Fort Worth.

The bond, which does not require a tax increase for residents, will support construction of a new mental health hospital, a main hospital tower, a cancer center, an ambulatory surgical center and four regional medical centers.

About 82 percent of residents voted for the hospital district bond, likely to be issued in multiple series over the next few years.
