Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital to Cut 25 Jobs

Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital in Charlotte, Mich., plans to eliminate 25 jobs, or about 6 percent of its workforce, "to better position itself to be successful in the challenging economic environment created by healthcare reform."

HGB has experienced lower patient volumes and declining reimbursements, which led to the decision to reduce its workforce.

"Based on last year's financial performance and the challenges we will continue to face in this era of healthcare reform, we knew it was critical to carefully examine how we will do business going forward," said Matt Rush, president and CEO of HGB, in a news release. "It became necessary to better align staffing with volumes."

The layoffs, along with other cost-cutting measures, are expected to save the hospital $2 million by next March.
