Presbyterian Hospital of Plano, TX, cites weak economy in job cuts
The president of Presbyterian Hospital of Plano, TX, said he must eliminate 17 positions because of the weak economy and tough competition among North Texas hospitals. Fewer people are coming to the hospital, said Philip Wentworth, the hospital's president, in an Oct. 20 letter to workers. "Reduced volumes reflect another national trend of consumers, due to the state of today's economy, opting to postpone elective procedures and diagnostic testing," Wentworth said.
