Future leaves Feather River Hospital’s transcriptionists behind
Chico Enterprise Record

Feather River Hospital has contracted with an outside company for medical transcription as it moves to comply with health care reform, said Maureen Wisener, the ridge hospital’s assistant vice president for foundation and communication. As a result, later this month, about a dozen medical transcriptionists will no longer have jobs with Feather River Hospital. Instead they have been offered work with the outside company, Transcend Services, which has contracts with more than 250 hospitals.
