Orange County Register

Roughly 250 Orange County Kaiser Permanente employees walked off the job Wednesday as part of a contract dispute, but company officials said patient services were not disrupted. Scott Kelly, a Kaiser spokesman, said the HMO employs 5,600 workers in Orange County as well as 850 doctors. He said some routine appointments with social workers and behavioral health therapists were rescheduled, but physician appointments, lab operations and hospital services were unaffected.
