Hospital’s New ER

On Tuesday morning, Sonoma Valley Hospital's new Emergency Room facility was in the final stages of being moved from its former well-used but run-down site to its brand-new, state-of-the-art location in the new wing. The moving was halted as medical staff turned their attention to a patient who'd just arrived by ambulance. (Photos by Robbi Pengelly/Index-Tribune)
