Lansing, MI-based Sparrow cuts 23 manager jobs
Lansing State Journal, January 14, 2009
Lansing, MI-based Sparrow Hospital has eliminated 23 managers' positions as part of a plan to cut costs. The move follows an announcement in November that Sparrow would seek an undisclosed number of buyouts from nonunion staff. Officials said 72 workers have accepted that offer. The hospital is facing a declining economy, rising costs for people unable to pay their bills, and a reduction in elective procedures, officials said.
