Rape Crisis (349-7273)

The Methodist Specialty and Transplant hospital has SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) nurses on duty and this is where most victims are taken because of their expertise. Juveniles are taken to Santa Rosa downtown. Note that victims arrive at other ER’s, but these are the preferred hospitals. Visit http://www.rapecrisis.com/.
