Akron General Eliminates About 60 Positions

Akron (Ohio) General Medical Center is laying off roughly 30 employees and moving 30 others into new jobs as it eliminates about 60 positions, according to an Akron Beacon Journal report.

The workforce reduction comes as the hospital converts many of its patient rooms from double occupancy to private rooms in response to lower inpatient volumes. "We're trying to take a decreased volume and do something that's a patient satisfier," Thomas Stover, MD, president and CEO of Akron General Health System, told the Beacon Journal.

The hospital stands to save about $4 million from the layoffs and the private room conversion, according to the report.
