Twenty-six losing jobs at KershawHealth
KershawHealth - New Signage
Just two months after being taken over by Capella Healthcare and MUSC Health, KershawHealth announced Wednesday it has initiated a workforce reduction plan which includes the elimination of 26 positions, reducing its workforce by approximately 3 percent. According to a KershawHealth press release, the reduction is necessary as the hospital “continues to face fundamental challenges, including an ongoing decrease in patient volumes as well as changes related to healthcare reform and the evolution of healthcare delivery models.” In the press release, KershawHealth officials said, “It has become clear that incurring ongoing financial losses like those experienced recently is simply not sustainable.”
