PROP 431 FACTS
November’s special election for Proposition 431 continues a tax levy that funds the land, buildings, and capital for Page Hospital. Page Hospital is a community-owned hospital that is operated by Banner Health.
As a community hospital, we are governed by a district board that is made up of members of our community. This governance includes being financially responsible for all expenses related to the grounds, building, and majority of the equipment used in the hospital.
The hospital district board has leased operation of the hospital to Banner Health to manage all operations of Page Hospital, including but not limited to: billing, staffing, and regulatory oversight to ensure that we are providing the highest quality medical care to our community.
This unique relationship with Banner Health allows our community to have high quality, evidence-based, healthcare while still maintaining a control of the services our hospital provides to us.
Proposition 431 is not a tax increase. This tax has been in place since 1984. A vote of yes will maintain your taxes at the same rate they have been.
With your support, Page Hospital can continue to provide up-to-date, state-of-the art healthcare. In just the last 10 years we have:
- Built a new Emergency department with increased trauma capacity and services
- Opened our ICU with Telehealth eICU© service that allows us 24/7 access to board-certified critical care intensivists
- Expanded and updated diagnostic laboratory
- Purchased brand new anesthesia machines & 64 slice high resolution CT scanner
- Started remodeling the pharmacy to include the addition of chemotherapy services
- Added Real-time mammogram results and 24-hour security services on campus
- Updated the medical floor with brand new hospital beds and integrated patient concierge software through Allen Technology®
- Obtained Planetree® Bronze level of certification (a nationally recognized achievement only awarded to 6 hospitals in the U.S. last year)
Over the last year Page Hospital has:
- Provided 10,651 ER visits
- Delivered 280 babies
- Admitted 816 patients
- Performed 413 surgeries
- Completed 58,121 hours of care
Many of us were born in Page Hospital, almost all of us have been cared for there, and every person in our community needs access to high quality healthcare, 24 hours a day. Support YOUR hospital; vote YES on proposition 431.
