Feather River Hospital earns Paradise’s 2012 Business of the Year award

Feather River Hospital has been recognized for its contributions to the Paradise ridge economy and community.

The hospital, which completed a $40 million upgrade to its emergency room last year, was named 2012 Business of the Year by the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau, according to a Feather River Hospital press release. The hospital also helps sponsor the town’s weekly Party in the Park Music and Marketplace, and actively supports the chamber’s “Buy Local” initiative.

“Feather River Hospital has taken a leading role in sustaining not only the health of the local residents through its continual enhancement of site and services, but also recognizes that a healthy local economy contributes to the overall well-being of the community,” said Monica Nolan, executive director of the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce.
