Another Monday Evening Meeting

The Sonoma Valley Health Care Coalition will hold another in its series of Monday Night Coalition Meeting on Monday, April 23 at Andrews Hall in the Sonoma Community Center from 7:15 – 9 PM.

At this meeting Chuck Rund of the Charlton Group will present the findings of the recent phone survey sponsored by the SVHCC. The results from the medical staff and physicians survey and the mail-in public survey will also be shared as well as an update on the status of the major alternatives being considered and the decision making process that SVHCC is engaged in to make its recommendations to the Sonoma Valley Health Care District Board of Directors.

We encourage anyone who has attended the Monday night meetings to attend this update meeting and we also encourage anyone who has not attended but is interested in the issue, to come to the meeting.

Monday, April 23, 7:15 – 9 PM Andrews Hall at the Sonoma Community Center.

This coming Saturday, Feb 10, the Coalition is having two friendly meetings to give you the best thinking we've come up with and show you the options that are being evaluated.

We'll share our 8,100 hours of research and do our best to answer your questions and listen to your concerns as we move forward.

Please come to the one that suits your schedule to get the straight skinney, don't rely on gossip around the water cooler, or rumors on the grapevine. We'll give it to you straight. No secrets.

There will be refreshments, coffee and tea, of course, as well as a selection of Aug Sebastiani's wine, cheese from Gary Edwards' collection, other edibles from the valley and beyond. And, in the morning session, Shelley's Homemade Jams for your bagels and cream cheese from Homegrown Bagels.

Come for the food, stay for the presentation, or come for the information, stay for the food! Your choice!

The Latest Documents Posted

Today, we added the most recent documents for the IN TOWN OPTION and the SMALL HOSPTITAL to the blog.

The complete list of documents posted can be found on the right hand side bar. Scroll down to find the document you want to view, then click on it. It will open the Acrobat program and then open that document in Acrobat (the only way we can view PDF files in this system).

You can continue to open as many documents as you wish and print them, if you want to. Some of them take time to load, but take a few deep, relaxing breaths, and they will be on the screen before you know it.

Feel free to email me if you have questions about any of the documents, or are having trouble.
