  Dr. Richard Powers has practiced family medicine at Sebastopol’s Palm Drive hospital for decades. Now he’s going to help run the closed and bankrupt facility, which he is intent on seeing reopened next spring.

In addition to seeing Palm Drive Hospital reopened early next year, new board member Dr. Richard Powers is also hopeful that the facility’s bankruptcy creditors will also be getting paid soon.

  When the hospital resumes operations, Powers anticipates a stepped up marketing campaign, to promote, among other things, an expedited patient experience.
