The Sonoma County Hospital was designed by Santa Rosa architect, John I. Easterly (1885-1974) in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. Construction began in 1936 and the hospital was completed and dedicated on April 24, 1937. The cost was approximately $300,000 of which $137,000 (45%) was supplied by the National Public Works Administration (PWA), and the remainder was supplied by Sonoma County with only a slight increase in taxes during 1936 and 1937.
