Shasta Regional takes a stand on unpaid bills
Redding Record Searchlight

Since being taken over by a firm in a bitter feud with one of the area’s primary insurers, Shasta Regional Medical Center in Redding has begun suing patients to recoup unpaid bills at a much faster clip than its competitor.

In fact, SRMC has sued twice as many patients during the same time period as its larger crosstown rival Mercy Medical Center, even though Mercy has nearly twice as much patient volume.
