Forging a New Path for Petaluma Valley Hospital

PHCD owns Petaluma Valley Hospital (PVH) and is currently negotiating a definitive agreement to transition and lease the hospital’s operations to Paladin Healthcare. Its current lessee, St. Joseph Health, has agreed to continue to operate PVH to give the District time to reach an agreement with Paladin.

 

District, Paladin and St. Joseph are currently discussing and developing agreed-upon terms of an operations transfer agreement. Our expectation is that all parties – the District, Paladin and St. Joseph – will work expeditiously to reach the necessary agreements, at which time we will submit the new lease for a public vote.

PHCD’s Board of Directors and CEO are committed to helping the community stay up-to-date on the process and engaged in our progress.

Petaluma Valley Hospital Operations Transition Updates
 

These updates are aimed at providing information and an official perspective to all Petaluma Valley Hospital (PVH) medical staff, employees and volunteers on the work being undertaken by all three parties involved in this transaction. It is the expectation of the District that all three parties and their representatives make themselves available for important meetings and calls to keep the momentum and accomplish our common goal of a smooth transition. Please do not hesitate to contact Ramona Faith if you receive any information that is contrary to these communications or if you have concerns.

LATEST UPDATE: September 18, 2017

 

• Designing an IT system to improve on the current state at PVH has been laborious, and is continuing with clarity on the goals we want to achieve and the obstacles we need to overcome. Our designated future operator has worked with a number of key vendors to design a system that improves on the current capabilities at PVH with a goal of providing an enhanced experience to all constituencies, patients, staff and physicians.

 

• The District has been able to reduce remaining issues to a small number, and therefore we are close to finalizing our lease and transfer agreements with Paladin. This has occurred through a number of face-to-face and virtual meetings held in the last few weeks, and we are scheduling the final meetings that will be needed to come to a final agreement.

 

• Once the final agreements are signed, we will be able to connect our future operator with physicians, staff and the community through a series of meetings where their vision for PVH can be better articulated and a two-way communication process can be developed and nurtured.

 

• The Distict expects the needed agreement with SJH will be reached to ensure that the transition from their stewardship to Paladin’s is handled professionally and with the goal of maintaining and enhancing care for our patients.
