Several disruptions to payroll at Ellwood City (Pa.) Hospital have been reported in recent months and employees haven't received their paychecks due Jan. 4, according to the Ellwood City Ledger.

The hospital, owned and managed by Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Americore, failed to issue paychecks due Dec. 21 until Jan. 4. At that time, Americore CEO Grant White said the delay was due to a backlog in collections.

In a memo sent to workers and obtained by the Ellwood City Ledger, Mr. White said the collections backlog is being rectified and paychecks will be issued Jan. 18. By that date, employees will have gone two weeks without pay.
