Western Pennsylvania hospital closing skilled care units on July 1

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, February 25, 2009

A health network is closing skilled care units in three hospitals it operates in western Pennsylvania, a decision that could affect about 100 employees by July 1. Excela Health spokeswoman Robin Jennings says some nurses and other employees in those units will be offered other jobs. Excela says the skilled care units in hospitals it operates in Greensburg, Latrobe, and Mount Pleasant have been losing unspecified "millions" of dollars.
