8.5 jobs cut at 25-bed New Hampshire hospital: 3 things to know

Valley Regional Hospital in Claremont, N.H., has cut the equivalent of eight and a half full-time jobs, according to a Valley News report.

Here are three things to know about the cuts.

1. The moves, which were announced Sept. 29, are expected to save about $600,000 in the current year, according to the report. That will leave the hospital with a budget that is "not quite break-even but it's sustainable," Valley Regional CEO Peter Wright told the Valley News.

2. Four full-time administrators and one working half-time employee were let go from positions in the hospital's senior management and in its education, nursing, engineering and materials and supply chain management departments, according to the report. Four other full-time positions will be left open.

3. No employees directly involved in patient care were laid off.
