Rising from the ashes: How Adventist Feather River is moving on after the Camp Fire wreaked havoc
Healthcare Finance | February 22, 2019
For Adventist Feather River, whose flagship hospital in Paradise, California was badly damaged in this past Fall's deadly Camp Fire, 2019 will be a reset, with a focus on rebuilding. And signs of progress were thankfully somewhat quick to come, relatively speaking. About a month and a half after the Camp Fire all but destroyed the town and killed dozens, they re-opened their large clinic and have been able to maintain continuity of care in many of the specialty clinic areas. "We feel really proud of that. That was a big undertaking for all of us. Making sure staff were available. Making sure providers were available," said Jill Kinney, the system's executive director of marketing and communications.
