Oakdale hospital re-signs exec
Modesto Bee

The Oak Valley Hospital District governing board has extended Chief Executive Officer John Friel’s contract for four months so he can stay on while the district finishes building a new hospital. The board’s vote last week to extend Friel’s contract to Feb. 28 came after it rejected his request in March for a three-year contract extension. Friel, 66, has been Oak Valley CEO since 2002, and his contract was set to end Oct. 28.
