Petaluma Health Care District provides unique model
The Petaluma Health Care District (PHCD) is one of 78 health care districts in California.
The core mission of health care districts remains to ensure health and health care services are provided to the communities that created them.
Financially, PHCD operates a little differently than most as it does not rely on parcel taxes, which most do, for financial support. The district’s assets total $11 million, and revenue comes from the hospital lease payment from the operator, direct services, and investments.
“We’re unique in that we own Petaluma Valley Hospital (PVH), and lease out operations, which allows us to focus on community health programs,” said Ramona Faith, district CEO. “The district has really elevated its role and impact on community health by creating a model that brings together all sectors of the community to address greatest health needs in southern Sonoma County.”
