Ottumwa Hospital Lays Off 30 Workers

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) The head of an Ottumwa hospital says the organization is laying off 30 people in an effort to find "the right number of people to do the job."

Ottumwa Regional Health Center chief operating officer Phil Dionne tells the Ottumwa Courier that the 30 people losing their jobs are from a variety of hospital departments.

Dionne notes that the people being laid off represent a small percentage of the 785 people employed at the hospital.

Dionne says the decision came after a long look at staffing.

He says there is no chance the hospital will close, noting it's "very strong as an organization and continuing to grow."

The hospital began working Thursday with employees losing their jobs to provide help finding other employment.
