Crouse Hospital to Cut 70 Jobs in Second Round of Layoffs
Positions affected by the most recent round of layoffs include practical nurses, nursing assistants, nursing support and non-nursing positions. Twenty-three of the positions were already vacant, according to the report.
Although the non-profit hospital is still operating in the black, an official said cuts are necessary because expenses are rising faster than revenues, according to the report. Along with the layoffs, Crouse is also closing its outpatient diabetes program and relocating its stroke unit.
