SVH officials promoting the importance of ‘advanced directives’

“Crisis is the worst time in the world” to start thinking about what your beliefs are about long term care and other medical issues, says Dr. Robert Cohen, chief medical officer at Sonoma Valley Hospital.

Cohen was an emergency room doctor at the hospital for more than 28 years – and he is “passionate” on the subject of deciding what you want the end of your life to look like before it, perhaps unexpectedly, arrives.

SVH is working in conjunction with “My Care, My Plan: Speak Up Sonoma County,” to help the public become more educated and aware about advance health care directives.
