Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital could cut 120 jobs
The Californian - Salinas

Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital could eliminate 120 positions, including dozens of nurses, if not enough workers leave voluntarily or do not opt for a separation package.

At the same time, labor unions are voicing outrage over a recent raise handed out to the hospital’s top executive.

The hospital is positioning the potential layoffs as part of a restructuring effort to cut costs, streamline efficiencies and comply with the Affordable Care Act.
