Hospital adopts hiring freeze

February 19, 2003

Bainbridge Memorial Hospital is especially concerned about medicaid cuts. The hospital's president announced a hiring freeze Wednesday afternoon.

Along with the hiring freeze, the hospital will look at cutting other services such as the school nurse program. The hospital director plans to cut 60 jobs by not filling positions when they become available.

"It's going to hurt our staffing, it's going to hurt our response time and there will be services we can't provide to the community they need and nobody else can do," Jim Peak C.E.O. of Bainbridge Memorial hospital.

The hospital also announced employees should not expect annual raises this year, and the hospital will not make charitable contributions.
