Pennsylvania hospital's payroll troubles persist

Several disruptions to payroll at Ellwood City (Pa.) Medical Center have been reported in recent months, and those issues have not been resolved, according to the Ellwood City Ledger.

For the last six paydays, hourly hospital workers received minimum wage for their hours worked. They typically receive the rest of their wages within two weeks. Since August, hospital employees have reported 16 incidents of paychecks being delayed or receiving minimum wage for their hours worked.  

In March, Ellwood City Medical Center CEO Beverly Annarumo said unpaid accounts are the root cause of disruptions to payroll at the hospital

The hospital, owned and managed by Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Americore Health, is the subject of federal and state investigations because of the payroll problems, according to the report.
