MCCH Announces Layoffs and Cost Cutting Measures

Murray Calloway County Hospital is laying off 28 employees and implementing other cost cutting measures this week. MCCH President Jerry Penner says in a press release that the cuts are a response to a $7.5 million shortfall in patient volume since last October and a decline in Medicaid reimbursements. Penner says the cuts are regrettable but necessary to keep the hospital running.
