ValleyCare and Sharon Regional Health System mum on number of layoffs

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Sharon Regional Health System and the operator of three other Valley hospitals have announced they are laying off some employees.

According to a statements from ValleyCare and Sharon Regional, staff changes are being implemented due to changes in the volume of patients.

The statement says that some employees are being placed on furlough and hours are being reduced for some other employees.

ValleyCare  operates Northside Medical Center in Youngstown, Trumbull Memorial Hospital in Warren, and Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital in Howland.

Neither statement gives the number of employees impacted by the cuts.

Sharon Regional says furloughed employees will retain their positions and those who are eligible will keep their benefits for up to 90 days if necessary.

The statement says the reductions will not compromise patient care quality or safety.

The Franklin, Tennessee based Community Health Systems is the parent company of  both ValleyCare and Sharon Regional.

CHS, which operates 158 hospitals in 22 states, revealed earlier this month that it is considering the sale of seventeen hospitals in a further effort to pay off debt after reporting a $79 million third quarter loss.
