Napa Valley Register

Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Napa’s largest health care facility and one of the largest employers, will conduct a comprehensive “improvement plan” that will include staff layoffs and program cuts, according to an April 21 letter sent to all 1,365 employees.

“Supporting our many services is becoming more and more costly,” said the letter signed by President and CEO Walt Mickens. “We must transform the way we provide health care and we must act now.”
