OB-GYN contracts not renewed at Barton
Tahoe Daily Tribune

Barton Health is looking to hire new obstetricians and gynecologists after two physician groups decided not to renew their contracts with the hospital.

Negotiations fell through after Barton decided to stop managing the Tahoe Women’s Care offices in South Lake Tahoe and Minden, Nev. And some of those physicians say they won’t be taking on any new patients.

As a Californian nonprofit and under the Corporate Practice of Medicine Act, Barton cannot legally employ physicians.
