Harborview will improve because of bond approval

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of King County for approving the Harborview Proposition 1 bond issue last month.
   Your vote to seismically uprgrade the older structures on Harborview Medical Center's campus and to add 50 critical-care beds demonstrates your commitment to assuring that Harborview has the capacity to meet the needs of our community during an earthquake or other catastrophic event.
   Our commitment to you is to make sure that your dollars are managed efficiently and effectively and that our facilities, physicians and staff are fully prepared in the event of a disaster.
   Again, thank you for saying "Yes for Harborview" and your vote of confidence in the valuable role we play in this community.
   David E. Jaffe, Executive Director, Harborview Medical Center
