Hospital increases prices
Sonoma Index-Tribune

In a move expected to bring in up to $450,000 annually, Sonoma Valley Hospital is scheduling regular price increases to keep the district hospital in line with what other area hospitals are charging for services.

Rick Reid, chief financial officer of the hospital, said it was a change that affects private insurance companies that contract with the hospital to cover their users.

“This price increase did not impact our self-pay or no-insurance patients,” he said.
