Eastern Connecticut Health Network loses about 20 employees

Los Angeles-based Prospect Medical Holdings, the new for-profit owner of Manchester-based Eastern Connecticut Health Network, laid off about 20 employees at the network, according to a Journal Inquirer report.

Facilities affected by the layoffs include Manchester (Conn.) Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital in Vernon, Conn. Nurses, radiology and sleep lab technicians, a clinical educator, a linen room aide, and some managerial and clerical staff, including the vice president of business development, are among those who lost jobs.

Prospect officials told affected employees via a Jan. 31 letter that their position was "selected for reduction because of job elimination and reorganization" based on the department or company's needs, according to the report.

Prospect completed its acquisition of ECHN on Oct. 1, 2016. Additionally, Michael Collins was named interim CEO to replace ECHN's former president and CEO Peter Karl, who resigned effective Sept. 30, 2016.
