Tri-City Says It Wants To Abandon Eminent Domain Fight
After spending millions of dollars on a court battle, Tri-City Medical Center announced Friday that it will try to abandon its eminent-domain claim on a three-story medical office building at its Oceanside campus. In a short statement, the public-district hospital said its board members voted 5-0 to drop the condemnation proceeding they started in 2014 because the $16.8 million value a jury put on the building in June is “double its actual value.” Tri-City said it will seek to pull back a $4.7 million deposit it made on the building and give the structure back to owner Medical Acquisition Company of Carlsbad.
