I am a physician who has worked at Sonoma Valley Hospital for years in the past. During my career I have worked at many other hospitals. In my opinion the level of care that our hospital provides is as good or better than any other hospital that I have worked in.
I also have been a patient in our hospital and I have used the lab and outpatient facility and the ER. I also have loved ones who have been cared for here. The skilled nursing facility is a gem that is not found in any other local hospital.
The parcel tax is essential to the continuing operation of our hospital. I feel strongly that the taxpayers are getting their money’s worth for their tax dollars. Please vote for Measure E to maintain the existence of our hospital.
