Coshocton Hospital announces reduction in force

| March 14, 2014

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Hospital Interim CEO Lorri S. Wildi has announced a reduction of 25 employees in the initial phase of the hospital’s restructuring plan.

The announcement follows weeks of extensive review of the hospital’s financial position and declining patient volumes, as well as comparisons with hospitals of similar size and scope.

“We needed to size the organization appropriately for our volume of patients to get our costs under control while continuing to provide quality, compassionate care to our patients,” said Wildi. “With this restructuring, we will be in a position to transform ourselves into the financially strong, viable community healthcare provider we’re dedicated to becoming.”

The hospital administration has identified an additional 22 positions that will not be filled and are due to recent resignations, retirements and transfers. These openings were not a part of the reduction in force.

“This has been a difficult decision and we thank these employees for their years of service to Coshocton Hospital,” said Wildi. “I share with our leadership team the profound confidence that our team of employees have the skill, compassion and dedication to contribute to the successful future of our hospital.”

Plans are continuing for Coshocton Hospital’s restructuring process with a continued focus on strengthening the organization through enhanced clinical programming, improved operations and financial performance, and long-term, sustainable growth. More specifics regarding these plans will be announced as they become available.
