Struggling Erlanger at Hutcheson plans another round of employee cuts | timesfreepress.com


Erlanger at Hutcheson is planning to lay off less than 4 percent of its 825 employees as part of budget cuts.

Erlanger at Hutcheson will be cutting its staff over the next 60 days in an attempt to cut costs and “right-size” the struggling North Georgia hospital.

CEO Roger Forgey said he did not have an exact number, but the cuts would be “less than 5 percent” of the 825 employees.

Hutcheson, which has been managed by Erlanger Health System since May, has lost millions over the last year, defaulted on a $35 million bond and laid off 75 employees in April.

While it has been losing about $1 million a month, Hutcheson recorded slightly better numbers in December with a loss of $894,354 and improved patient numbers. January numbers will be released next week.
