NY hospital cuts 22 nursing jobs

Samaritan Hospital in Troy, N.Y., has cut 22 full and part-time positions for licensed practical nurses as part of a new staffing model, according to a Times Union report.

That new model, also used at Albany, N.Y.-based St. Peter's Hospital, employs registered nurses and aides, but not LPNs, Norman Dascher, CEO of Samaritan and St. Mary's hospitals in Troy, told the Times Union.

Employees affected by the layoffs at Samaritan were offered jobs in other parts of Albany-based St. Peter's Health Partners, the hospital's parent.
