Palm Drive Hospital shuts down amid money woes
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Palm Drive Hospital closed Monday after eleventh-hour negotiations failed to reach an agreement to keep the money-losing Sebastopol hospital open.

Dozens of hospital supporters and local residents gathered outside the entrance to the emergency department at noon as maintenance workers secured the building and posted closure notices at all entrances.

Some hospital staff carried out boxes of personal items while workers comforted each other with tearful embraces.
