San Francisco Chronicle, July 2, 2008
Officials at Children's Hospital Oakland have abruptly laid off 84 people, including doctors, nurses and clinical workers who were escorted out of the facility by security. The cuts, affecting 3% of the hospital's workforce, are intended to save $10 million a year, and numerous departments were affected. Some departments are being almost entirely eliminated, sources said.
