San Diego Union-Tribune

About a quarter of the staff at Alvarado Hospital has been sent layoff notices this week, according to a notice the owners sent to state employment officials.

Letters were mailed to 249 employees, including 91 nurses, that gave a 60-day notice of termination effective March 13. Other positions slated for elimination run hospitalwide, although the pharmacy may be among the hardest hit with 10 pharmacists and 13 technicians slated for layoffs.
