REGIONAL: Former Sutter Lakeside head chosen as Sonoma Valley Hospital president, CEO

Sonoma Valley Health Care District announced this week that it has hired Kelly Mather as president and chief executive officer of Sonoma Valley Hospital.


Mather is the former CEO of Sutter Lakeside Hospital in Lakeport. She's also the author of six books on health and wellness, and developer of a healing model for hospitals.


She will begin work as CEO of Sonoma Valley Hospital on July 19.

 

“Kelly was quickly perceived by both the search committee and by the district board as a courageous and decisive executive,” said Sonoma Valley Health Care District Board Chair Bill Boerum. “She embodies the mission of the district ‘to maintain, improve, and restore the health of everyone in our community.’ We believe Kelly will be a transformational presence and leader.”

 

Mather was named Sutter Lakeside's CEO in 2001. During that time she transitioned the hospital to the critical access hospital designation, with a maximum of 25 beds.


She left in 2008, when she founded Harmony Healing House, an education and consultancy organization devoted to the concept hospitals offering four levels of healing – traditional hospital care, staff wellness, health awareness education in a healing environment and community outreach.


Mather recently completed a successful 18-month pilot of her healing hospital model at Mendocino District Hospital.


An avid writer, lover of nature and yoga practitioner, Mather is married and the mother of three children, ages 10, 12 and 15. The family currently lives in Lake County but plans to move to Sonoma.
