Lake County News - Elizabeth Larson

Facing a lower patient census and revenue shortfalls, Sutter Lakeside Hospital this week notified 19 employees that they would either be laid off or have their hours reduced. Hospital officials – who called the decision “extremely difficult” – said the layoffs go into effect Jan. 15. Siri Nelson, who joined the hospital last year as its newest chief administrative officer, said no direct patient caregiver positions were eliminated.
