MANSFIELD — Every MedCentral Health System employee will be affected by significant changes in staffing, including workforce reduction, a hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The estimated savings is $6 million in 2013.

Spokeswoman Cindy Jakubick said the changes are necessary because of cost pressures of Medicare and Medicaid, an increase in the number of patients without insurance and lower inpatient volume.

She said inpatient volume has decreased 27.7 percent since 2009.

About 25 positions will be eliminated. Employees have 90 days to apply for other positions within the hospital, Jakubick said.

She said other employees may see a loss in hours, reduction in paid time off, pay cuts or no raises.

Jakubick said the changes are the most significant for employees she’s seen in her 20 years at MedCentral. She said they are ongoing, but many will take affect by the end of this month.

“All 2,500 of our employees were notified in a year-end letter from Joe Chamberlain, our acting president and CEO, that our health system is making a number of changes, including workforce reductions, to respond to the ever-changing health care environment,” she said in an email.

Employees were informed of specifics in meetings Monday. Jakubick said the planning process has been in the works for months.

“We are aggressively taking action to reduce supply costs, we changed our employee medical insurance network and have consolidated services, including closing a nursing unit at Mansfield Hospital,” Jakubick siad.“We have not replaced everyone who has left our employment.”

Jakubick said there are open positions at MedCentral, but many of those wouldn’t be an option for some.

“Some take a certain license. They are license certified,“ she said.“All of the employees whose positions were eliminated will be notified of open positions.”

Jakubick said bringing the affected employees back in the future would depend on whether patient volume increases.

“But that is not expected to happen, at least not on a permanent basis,” Jakubick said.“We’re doing this to be proactive. We’re keeping a close eye on finances so we can have a bottom line. We will be vigilant.” I thought Obama was suppose to help?

This is nothing wrong with making a profit, but you don't do it by walking over your employees!

I feel sorry for those nurses that were fired for not taking the flu shot! If hospitals/businesses are going to force employees to take vaccinations, then there needs to be a law that states employees are to get an infinite number of sick days. And there needs to be a change in overtime pay! Companies shouldn't be allowed to work people across workweek to avoid paying overtime!
