Sonoma West Medical Center Snags Grant To Extend Care For Patients
Sonoma West Medical Center has been awarded a $750,000 federal grant for developing partnerships to keep people healthy after they’ve left the Sebastopol hospital. The funds, to be used over a five-year period, will be used to create processes and services that essentially track and support patient care, beginning with the emergency room or inpatient setting and continuing all the way to the home. The hospital’s potential partners include West County Community Health Centers, home health agencies and county in-home support services. (Espinoza, 77)
