South Fulton Medical Center to Lay Off 80 Workers

Tenet Healthcare Corp.'s South Fulton Medical Center in East Point, Ga., will close its labor and delivery unit and will eliminate 80 positions, according to an Atlanta Journal Constitution report. 

Tenet attributed the closure to "continued reimbursement decreases for this program that make it difficult for smaller hospitals with lower volumes to operate this service line," the company said in a statement.

SFMC was purchased by Tenet in 2001 after it entered bankruptcy. In February, the Dallas-based hospital operator announced it would consolidate SFMC with Atlanta Medical Center and would eventually rename the hospital Atlanta Medical Center-South Campus.
