Mission Health President and CEO Dr. Ron Paulus informed employees in a letter at the end of August that the hospital will be laying off some employees as part of an effort to reduce costs.
According to the letter, the hospital is being forced to eliminate about 70 positions to reduce the hospitals overall operating costs. “There will be some caregivers (fewer than 70) who are nonetheless impacted by a job loss,” reads the letter.
Paulus explained that the 70 positions do not necessarily mean 70 individuals, as the hospital will try to save as many jobs as possible through attrition. “For any job elimination, we will work hard to find an alternative role that is appropriate for the skills and experience of that individual,” the letter states.
