Sutter transfer of Marin General Hospital nears
San Francisco Chronicle

A minute before the clock strikes midnight on Tuesday, Sutter Health will return the management of Marin County’s largest hospital and only trauma care center – Marin General Hospital - to the district board, and it will once again become an independent, locally run facility.

The breakup has been long and nasty, fraught with conflict between former members of the elected Marin Healthcare District board and Sutter Health, a large nonprofit hospital chain based in Sacramento that has leased the hospital since 1996.
