Chanate Campus

The Chanate Campus (The Campus) is centrally located in Santa Rosa, California and is made up of about 71 acres of land surrounded by beautiful semi-wooded hills, valleys, and residential neighborhoods. The property has served the community's health and medical needs for several generations. When the largest property tenant, Sutter Health, turned the campus back over to the County in 2014, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors decided to sell the underutilized County property to create new opportunities for much-needed housing.
