As owner of Coast Environmental for 10 years, I worked with over 150 hospitals in California providing construction and maintenance related services. We employed nearly 100 people and had projects ongoing in multiple hospitals on a daily basis. Tri-City Medical Center was one of our customers. We worked on major infrastructure (HVAC, Plumbing, Seismic, Medical Gas, etc.) projects with contractors like Swinerton and Turner at hospitals including Scripps, Naval Medical Center, UCSD and many others.
I sold my business in 2014, and now I can give back to the community. Our community owns Tri-City Medical Center. I will serve as your representative to guide Tri-City through its implementation of desperately needed infrastructure upgrade, and in particular an upgrade to meet seismic standards, which if not met by 2030 will force the state to close the hospital. I bring to the hospital board the experience to guide hospital leadership down the most efficient and responsible path in creating a world-class healthcare provider that our community can continue to count on. Patient health and healing, patient safety and staff satisfaction are my most pressing objectives.
My wife Amy and I have four young children and we have lived in Oceanside since 1999.
