Petition: Save the Family Birth Center at Petaluma Valley Hospital
We, the undersigned Petaluma community members, call on Providence to keep open the Family Birthing Center at Petaluma Valley Hospital.
The Family Birthing Center is a vital and lifesaving service. Over the years, thousands of our neighbors have been born there and its closure could have devastating results for babies and our community as a whole.
We stand with our Petaluma Healthcare District board, which has voted to reject Providence’s request to close down the birthing center, a move which in turn would send pregnancy related emergencies to their already overburdened PVH Emergency Room, setting the stage for even more devastating outcomes.
Providence is a large and profitable company that should be investing in our community — not taking away vital OB services!
