District Grant Programs
* * *
In 1952, the Grossmont Healthcare District – known at that time as Grossmont Hospital District -- was formed to build and operate Grossmont Hospital. Today, the District continues to serve as landlord of the hospital on behalf of local taxpayers.
The District is a public agency that supports many non-profit, health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region. In addition to assisting these non-profit organizations, the District also is an active supporter of healthcare education and training for the benefit of future generations.
As a taxpayer-supported public agency, the District receives property tax revenues. These tax dollars are then distributed for a variety of community programs and services through sponsorships and grants. About half of this revenue is provided to local non-profit, health-related organizations. The other half is allocated to enhance services at Grossmont Hospital. District funds to Grossmont Hospital help purchase an array of needed, high-cost medical equipment and to make improvements to the physical plant.
