Willits to get new hospital
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

After nearly a decade of fits and starts, work is about to begin on a new, 75,000-square-foot hospital in Willits.

“It’s just so exciting,” said Margie Handley, president of the Howard Memorial Hospital’s foundation board, which initiated the drive to replace the 84-year-old structure.

State hospital regulators last week approved plans for the $64 million project, setting the stage for building to begin this summer, she said.
