16 Workers Laid Off From Volunteer Community Hospital in Martin

April 19th, 2013 - By Steve James

 

More than a dozen hospital workers at Volunteer Community Hospital in Martin were laid off on Thursday.

Hospital officials said the firing came as a result of the hospital making mandatory staffing adjustments to 16 positions.

Officials with Volunteer Community Hospital said the cuts were necessary.

A release from the hospital’s Director of Public Relations, Lora McDonald stated:

 

Volunteer Community Hospital is committed to providing quality care for our patients through effective and efficient operations. We continually monitor volume and acuity to ensure staffing supports the services our patients and community need.

This week we are making a staffing adjustment of 16 positions. These changes are being made with compassion and we will provide appropriate support for impacted employees. We value the skills and service of each individual and regret that the reductions are necessary.

We have carefully considered these decisions to ensure we will not compromise patient care, quality or safety and that no one area of the hospital is overly impacted.
