Healdsburg hospital to lay off 30 employees
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Healdsburg District Hospital announced plans Thursday to lay off 30 employees, or 8 percent of its workforce, as it adapts to changes in the way health care is delivered. CEO Nancy Schmid said the hospital is revising its operational and care models to meet the needs of patients while responding to cost-cutting pressures unleashed by federal health care reform. The hospital, which currently employs 360 workers, has been evaluating its cost structure and comparing the size of its workforce with other area hospitals, Schmid said.
