Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Sutter Lakeside Hospital is closing two clinics in Lake County to cut costs.

The clinics — a pain management program in the Lakeport hospital and a general health clinic in Upper Lake — have been operating at a $1.2 million annual loss, said hospital administrator Siri Nelson. The hospital also has said it intends to lay off 10 percent of its employees as the result of an overall deficit of $2.8 million last year, Nelson said.
