Grass Valley hospital to close transitional care unit
The Union

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley will close its transitional care unit in February, affecting the employment of more than 20 staff members, the organization announced Thursday evening.

The decision to close the unit is due to the changes in financial reimbursement for skilled nursing care, which does not cover the cost of providing that care in an acute care hospital facility, according a statement issued Thursday evening.
