No more deliveries at Redwood Memorial? Community meeting set for Thursday

Redwood Memorial Hospital may soon lose its maternity ward.

The St. Joseph Health/Humboldt County Board of Trustees is considering a number of options, including moving the obstetrics program at the Fortuna location to St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka.

”It’s not just about closing the obstetrics at Redwood,” St. Joseph Health spokeswoman Leslie Broomall said.

A community forum to discuss the issue is set for Thursday, Broomall said. “We’re just trying to map the future, and we’re here to deliver health care to the community,” she said.
