Montrose Center Endorses Harris Health System’s $2.5 Billion Bond Referendum

The Montrose Center’s leadership is proud to endorse the Harris Health System Bond in the current municipal elections, with early voting starting on Monday, October 23, 2023.

The estimated $2.5 billion bond request will finance the rebuilding and upgrading of Harris Health’s facilities, which are quickly reaching their end of use and have been operating at near-full capacity for years. If passed in the November 2023 election, this bond referendum will support a much-needed investment toward the public healthcare safety net. Financially insecure members of the LGBTQ+ community, such as people living with HIV and other vulnerable communities, will benefit from more affordable access to hospitals and their services. This bond will be in conjunction with $100 million donated in philanthropic support and an additional $300 million funded by operational savings.   

Several essential operations will be initiated by the bond, including the construction of a new Level 1-capable trauma center which will replace the current Harris Health Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) Hospital, the addition of new community-based clinics in high-need areas, and the allocation of investments into Harris Health’s Ben Taub Hospital to extend its life span.

As Houston is the second fastest-growing major metropolitan area in the United States, this bond proposal and the updated healthcare facilities will make a positive impact in the lives of the most vulnerable community members that the Montrose Center serves.
