St. Mary-Corwin Restructures to Offset Financial Difficulties

St. Mary-Corwin has announced a restructuring plan that will pare down hospital services, reduce by over 270 the hospital’s staff, reduce the number of intensive care beds and concentrate its remaining services on programs that it projects can grow such as orthopedics and cancer care. The hospital’s emergency room, surgery services and cancer center will remain in operation under the revised strategic plan.

It is expected that the first round of layoffs will occur in May and will affect around 90 employees.  A union representative suggested that the initial layoffs will be scattered throughout the hospital and not impact just one service area.   The hospital filed a “Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act” notification with the state that sets the layoff transition parameters as March 15 to September 30.
