Vermont Hospital To Furlough 150 Employees

A Vermont hospital has furloughed 150 employees through June 20.
The Rutland Regional Medical Center has put almost 9% of its staff on unpaid medical leave.  The hospital’s revenue is down by 60% and its volume of use is down by about 40%.

The hospital's president says the drop in revenue is a result of the hospital suspending elective procedures.

The Rutland Herald reports furloughs, administrative cuts and projected physician cuts are expected to save the hospital about $2 million through June 30. About half of the furloughed employees were administrative staff from medical clinics.

The hospital will continue to pay health insurance premiums for affected employees.
