WHO WE ARE
The Petaluma Health Care District is a community owned and operated public agency. For more than 65 years, we have been dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Southern Sonoma County through leadership, advocacy, support, partnerships and education.
Our vision is to foster a healthier community, a thriving hospital and local access to comprehensive health and wellness services.
WHAT WE DO
We navigate and identify the health needs and priorities of our local residents, and provide or support services and programs in response to these needs. We ensure local access to quality emergency and acute care services at Petaluma Valley Hospital. We bring local partners together to take action to foster policy, system and environmental change to improve the overall health of our community.
PVH Due Diligence
In 2014, PHCD launched a due diligence initiative to identify viable options for the continued operation of PVH after the lease expires. This process includes a thorough evaluation of the following: current and future health care needs in our community; hospital operations and finances; current health care landscape locally, regionally and statewide; future trends in health care delivery; and future partnerships.
