South Carolina medical center cuts 12 positions

Aiken (S.C.) Regional Medical Centers cut 12 positions this month, the Aiken Standard reported. 

The 273-bed acute care facility attributed the move to changing healthcare needs.

In an email to the newspaper, the hospital's marketing director, Ashlee Brewer, said no patient care positions were eliminated and those who lost their jobs may move into other roles at the hospital. 

"On occasion, Aiken Regional Medical Centers finds it necessary to continue to adjust its workforce to meet the ever-changing medical needs of the community it serves," the hospital said in a Dec. 12  news release. 

Aiken Regional has more than 900 skilled healthcare/support professionals, as well as a medical staff of more than 120 multispecialty physicians.
