In March 2018, UCSF Health and Sonoma Valley Hospital (SVH), a district hospital that serves Sonoma Valley residents and provides general acute care services, signed an affiliation agreement to create an integrated health care network.
As part of the agreement, UCSF helped appoint a new chief medical director for SVH, Dr. Sabrina Kidd. Kidd has since aligned SVH's quality metrics with those of UCSF Health, so we share the same high standards of care.
Additionally, the UCSF Department of Neurology supports Sonoma Valley Hospital's Emergency Department through telemedicine services and oversees its certified Acute Stroke Ready program. These services help SVH physicians assess complex neurological problems.
Looking ahead, SVH is building a new Outpatient Diagnostic Center, scheduled to open this fall. The center will bring 21st century diagnostic services to Sonoma Valley and will serve as a diagnostic center for UCSF Health patients throughout the North Bay.
