OCEANSIDE, Calif. –  The Tri-City Healthcare District Board of Directors will hold an additional open meeting on August 21, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. to evaluate and reconsider its June 26, 2018 decision to suspend operations of the medical center’s inpatient Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) and Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU).
