Job cuts coming to Jersey City Medical Center

Jersey City (N.J.) Medical Center is cutting a number of positions, reports NJBIZ.

The hospital released a statement to Becker's Hospital Review, saying it is reducing its workforce, reorganizing and reassigning some staff. The hospital has already made various reductions through attrition, JCMC added.

The hospital attributed the workforce reduction, in part, to the changing healthcare and demographic landscape.

"As the delivery of healthcare has changed dramatically over the past few years, and will continue to evolve going forward, we have taken steps to create a more efficient model of delivery," hospital officials said in a statement. "Over the last several months, we have worked on changing many of the processes here at JCMC. For example, we redesigned our food delivery process to improve the quality, efficiency and customer service associated with how food is served to our patients ... In addition, we are implementing the Cerner [EMR] system which will streamline various patient care processes. [Now] after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to reduce our workforce."

Hospital officials did not disclose an exact number of job cuts to NJBIZ, but did tell the publication the number was less than 100.

The hospital said it is working with employees affected by the job cuts to apply for other jobs at JCMC and within RWJBarnabas Health System, of which the hospital is a part.

"Many employees have already accepted positions. We will continue to focus on the future and constantly improve our delivery of services to the community," JCMC added.
