Arizona hospital to cut nearly 3 dozen jobs

Yuma (Ariz.) Regional Medical Center said Aug. 4 it will cut 34 positions.

The hospital said the layoffs primarily affect those in support roles and are due to lower inpatient volume, according to TV station KYMA

"While this is a hard day for all of us, we believe these reductions position us well for our future, without the need to make further reductions," Yuma Regional Medical Center President and CEO Robert "Bob" Trenschel, DO, said in a news release. "We also recognize that our current volatile environment with the pandemic may bring about new challenges."

Yuma Regional has more than 2,500 employees and is offering those affected separation packages that include severance as well as job transition support.
