A Sonoma County judge has ruled that Sutter Health can continue
construction on its $284 million, 82-bed hospital in Santa Rosa,
the North Bay Business Journal reports. The new hospital, which
will replace the existing Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa, is
expected to open in late 2014.
The ruling stemmed from a challenge brought by the North Sonoma
County Healthcare District, the Palm Drive Healthcare District,
the California Nurses Association and other groups. The opponents
challenged the county’s approval of the environmental impact
report for Sutter’s new hospital, saying the project was not in
line with California environmental law.
However, Superior Court Judge René Chouteau dismissed most of the
charges, ruling that the two health care districts did not have
legal standing to challenge the approval of the environmental
report (Verel, North Bay Business Journal, 6/20/11).
