Citing what it calls “ongoing labor struggles and financial challenges” Aultman has announced that it will cease operations at two skilled nursing facilities, including the Transitional Care Center at Aultman Woodlawn and the Community Care Center at Aultman Alliance Community Hospital. A statement from Aultman did not say how many workers would be impacted. However, a Warn notice filed with the Department of Jobs and Family Services says 56 employees at the Alliance facility will be out of work at the beginning of April. Included in the cuts are 12 registered nurses, 14 LPNs, 12 STNAs and a number of others. The notice said there are no transfer or bumping rights for the jobs and the employees are not represented by a union. A company representative said Aultman does not expect to close the entire facility.
