Union Hospital reducing staff, around 150 positions

WABASH VALLEY, Ind. (WTHI) – News 10 has confirmed with Union Hospital officials they will be reducing staff by approximately 150 positions.

In a letter sent to employees from several CEO’s, changes in the healthcare environment and declining reimbursement were noted as contributing factors.

“We believe it is important to be transparent in decisions being made within the organization. Heath systems throughout Indiana and across the nation have been forced to reduce costs to address the rapidly changing healthcare environment. Union Health System is not immune to these economic pressures.”

Employees were notified Thursday of this upcoming reduction in staff.

“It is with great regret that we must reduce approximately 150 positions across the System before the end of the year. We are very much a family, and our associates are incredibly valuable to our organization. This difficult decision was not reached easily and comes only after careful considerations and thorough analysis.”

More details will be provided next week.
