Blue Island, IL, hospital to cut 120 jobs

Chicago Tribune, September 10, 2009

MetroSouth Medical Center in Blue Island, IL, confirmed that it plans to lay off 120 employees, citing the recession and its impact on hospital admissions. "It's a direct result of a decrease in our inpatient activity, which is similar to that of other area hospitals," MetroSouth chief executive Arnold Kimmel told the Chicago Tribune. "Likewise, the layoff is similar to what other service organizations are going through particularly in this very difficult economy."
