Alvarado Hospital said it will lay off nearly one-fourth of its work force and implement operational restructurings by March 13 in an attempt to deal with multimillion-dollar reductions in state and federal payments. As the parent company cuts 249 jobs, it said it will continue with a capital investment of $25 million to enhance the hospital’s infrastructure, particularly its emergency department.
