Too much staff, too few patients, says Pennsylvania hospital’s chief

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 28, 2008
The interim chief executive officer of the former Aliquippa (PA) Community Hospital described mass employee firings earlier this month as "gut-wrenching" but said it was a cost-cutting move crucial to the debt-burdened facility's survival. The CEO added that there are an average of only 25 to 27 inpatients each day in the 96-bed facility, which has been renamed Commonwealth Medical Center.
