The five hospitals in Solano County are a major drive to the area’s economy, according to a report released Wednesday by Economic Forensics and Analytics. Together, the five privately operated hospitals are responsible for more than 11 percent of the local economy, according to Robert Eyler, an economics professor at Sonoma State University and principal of the independent research and consulting firm in Petaluma. Additionally, the revenue generated by hospitals represents more than 7 percent of Solano’s total revenue.
