Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Amid dozens of emotional pleas to keep Palm Drive Hospital open, members of the hospital board voted 4-to-1 Monday night to shut down core services at the financially strapped Sebastopol hospital.

The move could force the temporary closure of the entire hospital by April 28.

At a public meeting at Community Church of Sebastopol, the Palm Drive Hospital District board approved a resolution that would cease acute inpatient services and close the emergency department by April 28.
