New York system cutting around 60 jobs

Rochester (N.Y.) Regional Health is eliminating about 60 positions, the health system confirmed to Becker's.

A statement from RRH said the changes affect less than one-half percent of the system population, mostly in nonclinical and management positions.

"Rochester Regional Health regularly evaluates and evolves its staff structure to meet changing market demands and improve operational efficiency," the statement said. "In recent months, we implemented several systemwide expense management measures, which included a review of all non-labor discretionary spending; consolidating and reducing supply expenses; eliminating waste, inefficiency and other unnecessary expenses; automating and streamlining processes; and a review of all open positions."

As part of these ongoing efforts, RRH decided to close a number of open positions as well as some filled positions, the health system said. 

RRH said affected employees will receive a severance package and will have the opportunity to seek other opportunities within the organization. Departing employees also will receive continued medical and dental benefits through their severance period as well as access to the health system's employee assistance program.
