EMH announces staff reductions: Thirty-one full and part-time positions cut

EMH announces staff reductions
Thirty-one full and part-time positions cut

From staff reports
Evans Memorial Hospital announced on Monday that a reduction of staff was implemented on Friday, January 16.  Thirty-one full and part-time employees were impacted by the change.  
Kirk Olsen, partner with ERHospitals, LLC, stated the reduction was in line with the plan presented to the hospital authority and necessary to help stabilize the hospital’s financial position.
“The savings from the reduction will significantly help the hospital in its efforts to regain financial stability, support current and new hospital programs and provide quality care for the residents of the county,” Olsen said.
 “We recognize that staff members are like family and that this is an extremely difficult management decision, but a necessary one that will significantly help the hospital move forward,” said ERHospital partner Steve King.
King stressed that the reductions were primarily in non-clinical departments. ‘‘We did not want to impact the delivery of quality medical care,” he said.  King also noted that additional staff reductions are not contemplated at this time.
