Florida system to cut 17 jobs

Health First, a four-hospital system in Melbourne, Fla., is eliminating some positions and leaving open ones vacant in response to financial challenges, Florida Today reported June 21.

Seventeen jobs will be cut and 36 will be left unfilled, according to Paula Just, the health system's chief experience officer. The roles are within customer support services, which "has grown disproportionately to the rest of our organization," according to Ms. Just. Administrative and clerical positions are among those affected. 

Health First is the largest employer in Brevard County, Fla., with 9,500 workers when fully staffed. It still plans to fill about 650 open jobs companywide and help employees find new places within the system if their roles were eliminated.
