Day Kimball Healthcare to cut jobs, budget: 3 things to know

Putnam, Conn.-based Day Kimball Healthcare is implementing a number of job and budget cuts, according to a WFSB report.

Here are three things to know about the cuts.

1. They are a result of reductions in state Medicaid. "Once again, our organization has been dealt a severe financial blow from the state that has far-reaching repercussions," said Robert Smanik, president and CEO of Day Kimball, according to the report. "We have no choice but to be proactive in cutting costs, and are doing so in a way that is measured, thoughtful, sensitive and focused on maintaining the delivery of high-quality care."

2. They include freezing wage increases for the current fiscal year and a workforce reduction equivalent to 23 full-time positions.

3. As part of the workforce reduction, 16 employees will be laid off and nine vacant positions will not be filled, according to the report. Eleven of the layoffs are administrative and operations positions.
