Regional Medical Center at Memphis to layoff 86 more, total of 230 positions lost
Roughly 86 more employees are planned to be cut from the Regional Medical Center at Memphis. Hospital COO Christine Pappas told the center's board of directors that cuts are not linked to the bad economy or to any possible future cuts to government subsidies. The cuts, she said, are part of a consultant firm's plan to guide the financially struggling hospital back to sustainability. The move comes just days after the hospital laid off 82 employees from departments across the hospital and permanently eliminated 62 vacant positions.
