From Adventist Health – 27 September 2020 | Out of an abundance of caution, Adventist Health St. Helena is temporarily suspending patient care services and evacuating all patients, due to the Glass Fire, President Steven Herber, MD, announced Sunday morning. All patients will be transferred to other hospital locations in a safe and orderly manner, and their family members will be notified.
