Sutter’s response to Marin lawsuit: A deal’s a deal
San Francisco Business Times

Things are likely to get nasty again soon in Marin County, where Sutter Health and the Marin Healthcare District are each seeking the legal high ground in a long-running dispute that’s moving into the courts. Sutter, which ended its long-term management contract at Marin General Hospital in late June after the two sides couldn’t agree to make nice, responded last week to a late August lawsuit by the hospital’s owner by saying the Marin Healthcare District needs to comply with terms of a 2006 agreement that allegedly calls on both sides to arbitrate their differences.
