Participate in the Street Naming Contest for Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Campus

I am pleased to announce the three finalists for the Street Naming Contest at Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Campus. Over one-hundred and thirty entries were submitted and went through the vetting process. Six of the most favored names were presented to me, and I had the pleasure of selecting the top three selections.

In July of 2015, when we first opened the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital, the community submitted names for the road that leads to the hospital and selected “Healthy Way”. I once again call on the constituents of the Second Supervisorial District to help us choose a name that is most reflective of the surrounding community, the medical campus, and the soon-to-come Behavioral Health Center.

I present to you the three entries (in alphabetical order) and why the contestant presented this name; please pick your favorite by Wednesday, October 7th to become part of the medical campus legacy:


Freedom Road:

Because we are all still walking on it — and Freedom Road often leads to places where we become broken and in need of respite and healing.

Healing Way:

Healing and wholeness in the community occurs when our minds bodies and spirit are in balance.

Recovery Road:

This represents a hopeful return to recovery for many seeking care at MLK Jr. Whether it is overcoming substance abuse, debilitating mental illness, or chronic homelessness, everyone is working towards their own recovery.



Please select your favorite of the three selections.  Voting will take place on a Twitter poll.  Please vote only once.

Forward the contest link to your friends and family and encourage them to cast their vote

The twitter poll will be closed October 2 and the alternative voting method will be closed no later than October 7, and the winner of the contest will be announced shortly thereafter.

NOTE: If you do not have a Twitter account you can also vote here.
