Cleveland medical center to cut employees

Cleveland Plain Dealer, May 15, 2008

Cleveland-based MetroHealth Medical Center plans to layoff 73 people in an effort to reduce costs by $17 million. The hospital lost $8 million in the first quarter of this year, after losing $6 million for all of 2007. MetroHealth is the safety-net hospital for the poor, and its loss came partly because of an increase in uninsured patients, said hospital representatives.
