Kimball Medical Center to Lay Off 73, Including Nurses

Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood, N.J., part of West Orange, N.J.-based Barnabas Health, plans to lay off 73 employees by the end of April, including 62 nurses, according to an Asbury Park Press report.

The layoffs stem from the planned merger of Kimball Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, N.J., also part of Barnabas Health. The merger was announced earlier this year and is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2014.

The New Jersey Nurses Union, Communication Workers of America Local 1091, which represents 274 nurses at Kimball Medical Center, is trying to stop the merger, according to the APP report.
