      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 ??pro-active measure?? 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; ??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.??
