Cleveland Regional Medical Center Loses Staff Through Layoffs, Walk-Outs
Cleveland (Texas) Regional Medical Center laid off roughly 20 employees Tuesday, and about 50 more walked off the job Wednesday, according to a Cleveland Advocate report.
Cleveland Regional recently closed its second floor and moved patients to other facilities in a cost-cutting move, according to the report. According to an ABC13 report, the hospital owes $268,000 in unpaid taxes and has been "losing millions."
The hospital CEO, Vickie Newsome, RN, told the Cleveland Advocate the hospital may not be able to remain open much longer. "We still have the appropriate staffing to support the ER and other essential services but that could change if we lose more personnel," she said in the report.
