Paradise hospital lays off 800

With Paradise’s hospital closed indefinitely due to Camp Fire damage, two-thirds of Adventist Health Feather River employees got laid off this week.

Jill Kinney, regional spokeswoman for Adventist Health, told the CN&R that the organization retained or job-placed 407 of 1,205 Feather River employees. The remaining 798 received their final paychecks Feb. 5, though AH previously announced that their benefits would continue through May.

The Alliance for Workforce Development, a North State job center, is holding a special session for Feather River Hospital employees Friday morning (Feb. 15) in Chico. It starts at 9 a.m. at 2445 Carmichael Drive.
