Indiana-based Howard Regional Health cuts 75 full-time jobs
AP/Chicago Tribune, September 10, 2008
Kokomo, IN-based Howard Regional Health System says it has cut the equivalent of 75 full-time jobs due to a decline in patients. Howard Regional officials said that it has cut a total of 95 positions since mid-July and that since last October it's left more 180 positions vacant through attrition. CEO James P. Alender said that the drop in patients had been expected, but the decline has been faster than the employee attrition rate.
