El Camino Hospital to lay off 140
Modern Healthcare

El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, Calif., has announced plans to lay off 140 employees because of an ongoing decline in patient volume and revenue. The not-for-profit district hospital experienced a drop in revenue and volume in late 2009. The hospital was operating in the black year-end, but officials said income included one-time revenue sources, and that the financial picture has not stabilized as of midyear.
