Crouse Hospital announces layoffs


Crouse Hospital is reporting that it has laid off 25 people on Wednesday.

The layoffs consisted of 20 management positions and 5 non-management.

The hospital called it a â??pro-active measureâ?? as it prepares for cuts in federal reimbursements for care, and rising healthcare costs.

The hospital says the layoffs will keep Crouse in a strong position in the future.

Bob Allen, spokesperson for the hospital, said; â??This was a sad day because these people will not be here any longer, but the reductions do put Crouse in a positive financial path for the future.â??
