Grossmont Hospital bond oversight group adds new member

by Rick Griffin

A volunteer citizens group overseeing the spending of millions of dollars in voter-approved bonds for construction projects at Sharp Grossmont Hospital has a new member. La Mesa resident Dr. Lee Remington-Boone, a physician with the Grossmont Family Medical Group of La Mesa, has agreed to serve on the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC), whose members have experience in project management, large-scale construction operations, finance, labor and healthcare industries.
Remington-Boone has practiced medicine since 2001, and has been selected for four consecutive years by physician peers for San Diego Magazine’s “Top Doctors in San Diego” list. She has served as Chief of the Department of Family Medicine at Grossmont Hospital, and is currently a clinical faculty member with the University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine.
She graduated in 2000 from the UCSD School of Medicine. She worked with the San Carlos Medical Group starting in 2003, and joined the Grossmont Family Medical Group in 2005. She is a member of the American Board of Family Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, California Academy of Family Physicians and San Diego Academy of Family Physicians.
Her appointment to ICBOC was approved by the GHD board of directors. The ICBOC group has been meeting since 2006, when voters approved Proposition G, a $247 million bond measure sponsored by the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a taxpayer-supported public agency that serves as landlord of Grossmont Hospital, including ownership of the property and buildings, on behalf of local taxpayers. The ICBOC group is charged with monitoring Prop. G-related construction expenditures by the Grossmont Healthcare District. Bond revenues are projected to fund capital infrastructure improvements at the La Mesa hospital through 2016.
