Sheehan Health Network officials say they are working to correct a fiscal gap that left it unable to make payroll for about a quarter of its workforce last week. The hospital notified employees Thursday it would be unable to meet payroll distributed June 10, and would also be unable to meet the payroll to be distributed this Friday, June 24. The memo said the shortfall would not affect all employees, but a number of employees would have their checks returned for insufficient funds. In a phone interview June 21, CEO Mary Kargbo said she was optimistic the funding issue was resolved, but held off on confirming Friday's payroll would be fine until a final report is issued tomorrow by the finance department. Of 156 total employees, 39 workers had checks bounce last week. Funds have been restored to cover all of those checks, and the hospital has pledged to cover all bank fees associated with the bounced checks.
