Memorial trauma center gets 8-year extension
North Bay Business Journal

An extension of at least eight years for Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital to continue operating as the main level II trauma center in the North Bay took effect this week, a development hospital officials and the county said was “significant” and critical to the needs of the region.

The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted in March to approve the extension, which includes a provision for renewal after 2018 for an additional four years, giving the hospital a longer-than-average contract that would last through 2022. The contract took effect May 1.
