Redwood Memorial deliveries to continue; recruitment due date in 36 months

The maternity ward at Redwood Memorial Hospital in Fortuna will remain open, for now.

”The hospital’s intent is to collaborate with the community to successfully recruit new ob physicians into the program,” St. Joseph Health spokeswoman Leslie Broomall said Tuesday.

St. Joseph Health officials said they looked into closing the ward because it has struggled to obtain and retain new physicians.
