Sonoma Valley Hospital seeks parcel tax renewal
Sonoma Index-Tribune

Sonoma Valley Hospital is conducting a quiet campaign to renew the $195 parcel tax that has been in place since voters passed it in 2007. The money generated, hospital officials say, is critical for keeping the hospital and emergency room open for Sonoma Valley residents.

“The parcel tax provides 6 percent of our total revenue at the hospital, so that’s big,” said Peter Hohorst, chair of the Sonoma Valley Health Care District board, which governs Sonoma Valley Hospital.
