Beverly Hospital in Massachusetts Cutting Jobs–Hired Management Firm
Posted Aug 19 2010 7:44am
Its going to be another year for hospital layoffs unfortunately. As the money jars empty and management firms come in to help with efficiencies jobs are still at risk. BD
Citing a “rapidly changing health care environment,’’ the new chief executive of Northeast Hospital Corp. in Beverly told his staff yesterday that 75 to 100 jobs will be eliminated and the company’s senior management structure streamlined in the next four to eight months.
Northeast is the parent of 220-bed Beverly Hospital, 58-bed Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester, 64-bed psychiatric BayRidge Hospital in Lynn, which provides psychiatric care, and a Danvers outpatient hospital.
Northeast, which has been dogged by management problems over the past two years, eliminated 22 jobs last fall. Then, as now, it hired FTI Consulting, a management advisory firm specializing in restructuring, to identify where staffing cuts could be made without jeopardizing clinical care or patient safety.
