69 employees to be laid off at Marion General Hospital

Sixty-nine employees of Marion (Ind.) General Hospital will be laid off early next year, according to a WANE report.

The layoffs, which take effect beginning Feb. 1, 2015 and are expected to be lasting, come amid the hospital's plans to have a third party take over its surgical services operations, according to the report. 

According to the report, a notice was filed with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, although the notice does not indicate particular positions that will be terminated. It also does not indicate whether employees being laid off will have the option of getting another job with the hospital group, according to the report.

Between Feb. 1 and Feb. 14, the hospital will spend time transitioning to contracted services, according to the report.
