Frankford Hospitals lays off 100

From Phillyburbs.com:

Citing the troubled economy, Frankford Hospitals Thursday announced it has eliminated 100 full-time employees including a small number of “clinical” nursing positions.

The staff layoffs were part of an “operational analysis” that also involved staffing adjustments including eliminating opening positions and shifting employees into “alternative roles.”

A statement released by Frankford did not include many details including if the layoffs and job eliminations are across all three campuses; Frankford operates hospitals in the Torresdale and Frankford sections of Philadelphia and a third in Falls. Hospital officials were not available for comment after the announcement.

As the press release says, no information on which of the three Frankford hospitals are affected.  Read the story here.
