Paradise, California is a scenic small town about 1 hour and 45 minutes North of Sacramento. It is situated amongst pine trees on top of a ridge between canyons. The hospital is the town's major employer. There are great recreational activities nearby, including the second largest reservoir in California, Lake Oroville, which is nationally renowned for bass fishing. Paradise offers a relatively low cost of living for California. It is something of a retirement community, though there are lots of young families here, too. The town is fairly quiet after 7-8 pm, but 15 minutes away is the college town of Chico.
In 2016, AHFR had 5,156 admissions, 819 deliveries, 28,733 emergency visits, and 392,518 outpatient visits. The medical center is staffed by 219 physicians, 1,214 employees and 450 volunteers.
