About Redwood Coast / North Bay
The North Bay and Redwood Coast Sections are comprised of 22 hospitals, representing over 1,600 licensed beds in Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, Del Norte, and Humboldt counties.
As part of a North Bay Business Journal series looking at the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020 and how North Bay businesses are recovering, RVP Meghan Hardin had the opportunity to submit a column on what hospitals have learned from the pandemic.
On Dec. 21, at the request of Sonoma Valley Hospital CEO Kelly Mather, RVPs Meghan Hardin and T Abraham hosted a call with Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) and CHA advocacy staff. Mather spoke about the critical need for amended 2030 seismic legislation for Sonoma Valley Hospital. If the legislation stands as is, the hospital will close. Such a move would cause significant upset to both patient care and the Sonoma County economy.
