Sonoma Valley Hospital seeking parcel tax renewal
North Bay Business Journal

Sonoma Valley Hospital is seeking a five-year extension of a parcel tax that provides more than $2 million in annual revenue for the district hospital, which officials say is vital to maintaining core and emergency services in eastern Sonoma County.

The Sonoma Valley Health Care District, which oversees operations at the 83-bed hospital, is conducting a month-long, mail-in ballot to extend Measure A. The $195-per parcel tax generates about $2.85 million per year, according to Sonoma Valley Chief Financial Officer Rick Reid, who also is CFO of Palm Drive Hospital and vice president of finance and controller for Marin General Hospital.
