This Year's Mass Layoffs in Hospitals Projected to Equal 2011

If the rate of mass layoffs in hospitals remains steady, the industry is slated to have a similar number of mass layoffs in 2012 as it did in 2011, according to an American Medical News report.

The first nine months of 2012 brought 93 layoff incidents that left 6,529 people claiming unemployment benefits. A total of 124 mass layoffs are projected for the year, if this rate continues, affecting roughly 8,700 people.

The year 2011 brought 121 mass layoffs in hospitals, resulting in job loss for 8,098 people.

A mass layoff is defined as a minimum of 50 people losing their jobs from one company at the same time. Smaller incidents are not counted.
