Petaluma Valley Hospital in California’s Sonoma County this week suspended talks with Prime Healthcare Services as it attempts to solidify a deal with first-choice buyer St. Joseph Health.

Irvine, Calif.-based St. Joseph has held the lease on 27-bed Petaluma Valley Hospital since 1997, but the 20-year agreement expires in January. St. Joseph also operates nearby 272-bed Santa Rosa (Calif.) Memorial Hospital.
