Slidell (LA) Hospital’s regrouping will slice off up to 35 jobs
New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 19, 2008
Several senior-level administrators at Slidell (LA) Memorial Hospital, as well as numerous unit managers and patient-care coordinators, are losing their jobs as part of a plan to consolidate the hospital's management structure and streamline services. The efforts will save the hospital about $4 million per year, or about 3% of the hospital's total annual expenses. Administrators cited the downward economic trend as a reason for the reorganization, as well as their responsibility to the community to run an efficient, fiscally sound hospital.
