Knapp Medical Center in Texas Cuts 50 Positions

Knapp Medical Center in Weslaco, Texas, has laid off about 50 employees — a workforce reduction that comes one month after its acquisition by Ontario, Calif.-based Prime Healthcare, according to a report from The Monitor.

According to the report, the hospital laid off no more than 50 employees, most of whom held positions in management or support staff. The layoffs were attributed to a decrease in patient revenue streams, according to the report.

Knapp's interim administrator and CFO Dinah Gonzalez said the workforce reduction was not linked to the recent transaction between Knapp and Prime, which went into effect Jan. 1, according to the report.
