Connecticut's Greenwich Hospital Cutting 36 Jobs to Make Up for $8.5M Loss

Greenwich (Conn.) Hospital will be laying off 36 employees in response to a new state hospital tax that translates to an $8.5 million revenue loss for the hospital, according to a Greenwich Time report.

According to the news report, under the new law, the state collects 4.6 percent of all hospital income. The tax went into effect July 1.

Greenwich Hospital has enacted other sweeping changes to make up for the huge revenue loss. Those actions include discontinuing audiology services that is part of the hospital's physician medicine and rehabilitation program. The hospital also intends to phase out and transfer prescriptions from its pharmacy and close its outpatient dental clinic, among other cost-cutting measures.
