Healdsburg District Hospital first in California to directly hire a doctor

Healdsburg District Hospital has hired the first non-contract doctor in the state, thanks to the overhaul of archaic legislation.

Emerson Valdez is the first physician to be hired as an employee rather than an independent contractor.

Valdez’s new position was made possible by Assembly Bill AB 2024, which became law as of Jan. 1.  (North Bay Business Journal)
