The Grossmont Healthcare District, which supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego's East County region, serves as landlord of Grossmont Hospital on behalf of local taxpayers, including ownership of the property and buildings. In 1991, the District leased the hospital's operations to Sharp Healthcare under a 30-year lease that runs through the year 2021.
The District is governed by a five-member board
of directors, each elected to four-year terms, who represent nearly 500,000
people residing within the District's 750 square miles in San Diego's East County.
