I did Google hospital layoffs and seems to be a national problem. Look it up for yourself.

based on some of the people laid off and some kept, it was poor management decisions on the reform
some really good employees were let go and some terrible ones stayed, and it wasn't all based on seniority in the non-union jobs that were cut

I know KDMC definitely has it's faults, but I don't think that the people of the Tri-state take into consideration the huge number of patients in this area that do not have health insurance. When they are approved 100 percent for financial assistance the hospital nor the doctor gets paid a dime. It's simply written off. About 50 percent of the patients in our region are on this assistance plan at KDMC. It's hard to pay people's salaries when you are not receiving payment from about half the patients.

How did they expect to keep up their employees when they are building offices left and right. We are in a recession. All they had to do was stop building like crazy until the economy came back up. Laying off medical staff with the growing number of elderly that we have is just awful management.
