Middletown, N.Y.-based Greater Hudson Valley Health System is laying off the equivalent of 140 full-time positions from two hospitals.

Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown will see the equivalent of 80 full-time positions cut, and Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris, N.Y., will lay off the equivalent of 60 full-time workers. Combined, the cut positions account for 5 percent of GHVHS' total workforce.
