Measure CC (Yes/No Question):
To assure continued operation of Petaluma Valley Hospital as an acute care hospital with 24/7 walk-in basic emergency care for a minimum of 20 years, shall the Petaluma Health Care District enter into an agreement to sell Petaluma Valley Hospital to NorCal HealthConnect, LLC, a secular affiliate of Providence St. Joseph Health, for $52.6 million, per the terms approved by Resolution 20-05 adopted August 6, 2020?
As you learn more about Measure CC, below are some key reasons to vote YES on CC:
- Ensures Petaluma Valley Hospital (PVH) will remain open as an acute care hospital with a 24/7 emergency room for at least 20 years;
- Maintains all current operations and medical services with no increase in taxes;
- Ensures Southern Sonoma County has a local hospital, which is more important than ever amidst the pandemic and allows Petaluma-area residents including Kaiser patients, to be treated locally during a medical emergency instead of having to drive to Santa Rosa or Marin County;
- Continues charity care for low-income residents who may not afford to be seen without the charitable care offered at PVH;
- Supports hundreds of local jobs in the community and provides an opportunity for PVH medical professionals and employees to keep their jobs at comparable or better compensation;
- Provides significant resources from the sale of the hospital for the District to address important community health priorities, from senior wellness and mental health to homelessness;
