St. Francis Hospital to Slash Pediatric Staff

Hartford, Conn.-based St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center is cutting the staff at its pediatric and adolescent clinic, according to a report by The Hartford Courant.

Five part-time pediatricians will lose their jobs by June 30, according to the report. Additionally, two physicians and a nurse practitioner have left the clinic since October, and their positions are still vacant. Effective July 1, the clinic will be staffed by two physicians and two nurses.

The clinic has seen a decline in patient volumes recently, which led to the workforce reduction, according to the report.
