SVH staff facing salary cut backs
Sonoma Index-Tribune - Emily Charrier-Botts

After announcing two weeks ago that all staff not directly involved with patient care would be put on partial furlough, officials at Sonoma Valley Hospital told employees last week that anyone not on furlough would receive a 5 percent salary reduction. The furloughs, which will be in place for 90 days before being re-assessed, impact about 42 employees who are not on the medical staff, including the administrative staff, which will be furloughed 20 percent of the time.
