WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Southwest Regional Medical Center is cutting 29 jobs and reducing some services.
The Washington Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/19f6Nr40 ) reports that the 29 employees in different areas were notified Monday. But 14 chose retirement, leaving 15 non-voluntary layoffs. The hospital is located about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh.
Cindy Cowie, Southwest Regional's chief executive officer, says community hospitals are revising their service offerings to focus on outpatient testing, emergency care services, home health care and scheduled surgical procedures.
